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 Tomas (Agustin Markert) is now a drifting and withdrawn young man who experiments with ascetic practices and has an instinctive compassion for others.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

Excellent Movie with lots of zen teachings
27 September 2005 | by See all my reviews

The first movie from a young director, with a low budget but plenty of art and style, filled with poetry, sincere emotions and simple but true zen teachings. I takes place in Argentina, a country where eastern culture has a small place on its culture and it's often not understood. It shows us the simple things in life, the things that really matter in a simple but not naive way. The two cultures (eastern and western) "comfront" each other in the main characters which happen to be brothers. And each of them learn things from the other. It's great that there are people that care about these things enough to make a movie. See it, you won't regret it.
