Martin Scorsese directs this epic based on the life of the present day Dalai Lama. In 1937 a monk roaming in Tibet proclaims that the two-year-old son of a rural family near the Chinese border is 'Kundun' - the reincarnation of the Buddha of Compassion, and next in line as Dalai Lama. The new Lama is instructed as to his new responsibilities, and moves to Lhasa, the capital. However, after being invested on his eighteenth birthday, the Lama is forced to reject a claim by China on Tibet. When China invades, the Lama retreats to a monastery for his own protection, but the Communists still pose a threat to both him and his country.

Marguerite, South Africa. 17 June 2014

In 1997 Jean Arnaud and Martin Scorsese
both directed films dealing with the 14th Dalai Lama. Arnaud focussed on the adventures of mountaineers Heinrich Harrer and Peter Aufschneiter, who spent nearly seven years in Lhasa, working for the Dalai Lama's government. Scorsese chose to focus solely on the life of the toddler who, in 1937, was recognised as the reincarnated Buddha and who entered Lhasa to begin his spiritual and political training at the age of 4. By 1959, Tibet was in turmoil following a take-over by the Communist Chinese and the young Dalai Lama was forced to flee into exile in India, where he remains to this day.
Scorsese's film was nominated for numerous Oscars in the technical categories, including one for Roger Deakins's beautiful cinematography, one for Dante Ferretti's superbly detailed costumes, and one for Philip Glass's musical score. Scorsese also chose to use a cast entirely composed of Chinese and Tibetan actors using English dialogue. The four youngsters who portrayed the Dalai Lama at various stages in his life, all deserve praise for their very convincing performances.
A five-star film that offers Westerners a look at the rich culture of a sadly oppressed nation.
