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

A wonderful film to see
21 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The director (Anna Wilding) has done a wonderful job of getting us, the audience, to see the life of some through a different set of lenses. Ms Wilding, has found a style that allows the audience to see the textures and patterns of her reality. Future film makers need to take note as the gentle and subtle tones throughout allow for the audience to become involved with nothing else but the story - A story which is told with a reverence that is as golden and delightful as it is insightful. Nice to see this approach to film making and also nice to see this film be rewarded with audience members who appreciate it. Thanks for the view & I am sure that I am not the only one who will be forever grateful!
