Not a movie for everybody. Hidden here, by Gurdjieff's greatest student, Mme.Jean de Salzmann, are real questions for people who find themselves, willy-nilly, searching. What is miraculous? How can a child be educated so as not to kill them (inside) by the age of 6? What is a real sacrifice? There are even glimpses of sacred dances, done by Gurdjieff's pupils after decades of practice. Not a "feel-good" movie, but a "feel more" movie.
This film is not really about Tibetan Buddhists, but about young men being taught what love and life are about. Even the "bad guy" has a surprise for you. The innocence and passion of these monks (most of the extras ARE monks) is wonderful to see in this jaded age of violence and gratuitous sex.
