EUA, 1997- Historical Drama.
Director: Martin Scorsese.

Stunning, odd, glorious, calm and sensationally absorbing, director Martin Scorsese's "Kundun" is a remarkable piece of work with vital colors and a wrenching message.

That said, it may not be for everybody. The film's subject -- the Dalai Lama and the Tibetan struggle -- runs counter to the increasingly narrow focus of the American moviegoing public, which puts "Kundun" at risk of being categorized as a novelty.
  The movie is the visually detailed biographical story of the 14th Dalai Lama, spiritual and political leader of Tibet, from his early childhood to his forced exile in 1959 at age 24. "Happiness is not something ready made. It comes from your own actions."


"If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion."

Dalai Lama
