Little Buddha (PG)

Part Buddhist history, a metaphor about the tragedy of Tibetans in exile, and a religious tour de force, this film sees two monks from Bhutan travel to Seattle to find a reincarnated Buddhist master. As Bridget Fonda and Chris Isaak try to reconcile the fact that their son might be a spiritual leader, Bertolucci inserts an enchanting back story of the pampered young Buddha (Keanu Reeves) and his search for enlightenment in a world of suffering. Accompanied by Ryuichi Sakamoto’s powerful score, this film works in beautifully mysterious ways. 

Director: Bernardo Bertolucci
