Film provides a comprehensive view on Tibet conflict.
31 August 2019 | by shwetank20See all my reviews

We are well informed about what Tibet conflict is all about through documentaries. However, 'The Sweet Requiem' takes the storytelling approach. And its a wonderfull attempt !

There is no anger portrayed in the movie. Yet the film is able to sensitize the audience about Tibet. You are able to empathize with Tibet folks and understsnd what is it that bothers a Tibetan refugee. Beautiful screenplay at work. Kudos to the team !
