The Smile

Le sourire

Directed by Serge Bourguignon
France, 1960
Documentary, Short


This quiet and intelligent film is a remarkable interpretation of a young monks perspective into a world of meditation, sacred geometry, and coming of age. A tribute to Buddhism, introspection and the wonders of nature…a short but lasting work of art.
