  1. cin·aes·the·tic's rating of the film Samsara

    Dude, make up your mind. ;-) Seriously, though, this is a fine film, with a useful life lesson ('moral' is such an overused word). Shawn Ku and Christy Chung are both believable in their roles, showing that there are flaws in whatever path we choose, and it is up to us to find our way and to treat well the people we meet along the way. Christo Bakalov's cinematography is fantastic. Cyril Morin's music is hypnotic.

  2. Shawn Spitler's rating of the film Samsara

    Richly beautiful, smartly written and with a dash of humor. It's also one of the most erotic films I've had the pleasure of enjoying.

  3. ShawnD's rating of the film Samsara

    What a pleasant discovery. Lyrical and lovely, Samsara is a simply told tale at its core. The age-old tension of reconciling higher love with the need to be loved is made current while still being true to the essential question. The movie isn't perfect. A few scenes are clumsily acted and directed, but they fade into the distance at the thought of this beautiful film.

  4. David R Williams's rating of the film Samsara

    They say it is not the tale but in how it is told. Samsara's simple story holds few surprises but washes over you with frames filled with an overwhelming and at time otherworldly beauty and scenes that fill you with wonder, lust, happiness, a nearly crushing sorrow and finally a sense of hope and the possibility of forgiveness. A masterwork.

  9. lacame's rating of the film Samsara

    un film molto sexy, con importanti spunti di riflessione su temi come maschilismo ed egocentrismo, in strutture sociali dominate dalle tradizioni.

  11. Lena Falkivska's rating of the film Samsara

    Лучший способ избавиться от искушения — поддаться ему. Бесконечная мудрость главной героини - Пемы.

    The ultimate stoner film.

  13. Bibi Lamy's rating of the film Samsara

    très bon film, très bonne BO

  14. Egoisms's rating of the film Samsara

    Simple but effective. Embellished by the alternately ornate and austere beauty of the Himalayas, the plot traces a similar dichotomy. To get out or dive in? The Daoist tendencies of Tibetan Buddhism urged Tashi to get out *by* diving in. But he was a poor renunciate: not only could he not squash his desirous urges, he couldn't stop his doubts. His doubt, his moral seriousness, was his downfall. He cried too much.

  15. Mohammad Aboomar's rating of the film Samsara

    How can one prevent a drop of water from ever drying up? By throwing it into the sea.
