Storyline

Un Buda follows two brothers orphaned as children when their parents were taken by the military during the "Dirty Wars" of the 1970s in Argentina. Tomas (Agustin Markert) is now a drifting and withdrawn young man who experiments with ascetic practices and has an instinctive compassion for others. His older brother Rafael, played by Rafecas, is a university philosophy professor, detached and alone. Their struggles with each other and the world around them in Buenos Aires take a dramatic turn when they find themselves at a rural Zen center. Written by @guyatree

A wonderful piece of art!
18 August 2005 | by (Argentina) – See all my reviews

Hi Diego Rafecas, I Want to tell you that I liked the movie a lot and that it made me find my own way,congratulations!.I am 17 years old and while I was watching the movie I could find many things in common with the main character.I was moved during the whole movie and I cried.Maybe young people finds it difficult to express their experiences and their spiritual ideologies, that's why I consider this movie to be a starting point to show the world how I am and what I want to be tomorrow.Thank you very much for this excellent movie . It brings us many positive things to our life,especially it gives us hope for the future.I must say that this film stands out from the rest!.

Kind regards
