What a lovely piece. It does a body good to see film used in this manner. And it did my body good too. For it commands attention at the same time as it embodies peace, stillness, and the range of human truth that therein prevails. It is set in a tiny Buddhist monastery floating on a raft in a fabulous landscape and waterscape. Treat yourself. Be there. Watch it.
