Little Buddha

Directed by Bernardo Bertolucci
France, 1993


Part Buddhist history, a metaphor about the tragedy of Tibetans in exile, and a religious tour de force, Bernardo Bertolucci’s stunning follow-up to The Sheltering Sky sees two monks from Bhutan travel to Seattle to find a reincarnated Buddhist master.
