Little Buddha

Directed by Bernardo Bertolucci
France, United Kingdom, 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.

Little Buddha Directed by Bernardo Bertolucci

Critics reviews

What remains is the exotic spectacle, which in the case of Little Buddha is tied to a simple didactic aim. To teach children about such things is noble in theory . . .

And what are these children likely to take away from the film about Buddhism?
