Buddha Wild Monk in the Hut is the story of a group of Thai and Sri Lankan monks, living around their temple in a country far far from home.Anna Wilding gives the commentary in this unpretentious but original and illuminating film with a well-judged mixture of seriousness and humor which is in important contrast to the monks words. An enjoyable cinematic experience.A fascinating film" Written by Janet Taylor

Hear hear! A real feel good movie!
25 May 2006 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

If you are feeling played out,washed out,then wrung out I advise you to go and see this happy little film Buddha Wild- Monk in the Hut.This is a film that doesn't scour the depths of your conscience,leaving you small and inadequate.Nor does it require you to laugh immoderately at "manufactured" jokes to show you understood them.All it requires of you is that you sit back,completely unwind and give yourself over to Anna Wilding's gentle portrayal of a small happy community of Buddhist monks in a remote Buddhist monastery.I was impressed at the way the director and Producer,also the Presenter and Narrator played down her role even to the extent of spurning glamorous attire,make up hairstyling and general shunning any unnatural contrivance.This means she managed to portray calm,colour and happiness as a possible way of living.I learn from it,I loved it.Well done!
