Shame it wasn't actually filmed in Tibet very much though. The mountain back drop is apprently the Atlas in Morrocco!
In 1937, in a remote area of Tibet close to the Chinese border, a two year old child is identified as the reincarnation of the Dalai Lama, the compassionate Buddha. Two years later, the child is brought to Lhasa where he is schooled as a monk and as head of state amidst the colour and pageantry of Tibetan culture. The film follows him into adulthood: when he is 14, the Chinese invade Tibet and he is forced into a shaky coalition government; he travels to China to meet with a cynical Mao; and, finally, in 1959, ill and under siege, he flees to India. Throughout, he has visions of his people's slaughter under Chinese rule.
WHAT CAN I SAY?
Outstanding From Start To Finish
This is a true film masterpiece, the action, drama, and conflict of which take place and evolve in the viewer's *mind and consciousness* -- Scorsese evokes a time, a culture, a sense of identity of a people and a place that no longer exists as they did and does it with images rather than explication or dialogue.
.You can tell that "Kundun" was a Martin Scorsese pet project A Film from the Heart, a story he really wanted to bring to the big screen.
A film about a holy man and peaceful resistance is not your standard commercial fare, but this film visually stunning and emotionally poignant. With the artful production and fashion design by Dante Ferretti that goes hand in hand with the photography of Roger Deakins, that goes hand in hand with Philip Glass' music, that goes hand in hand with Thelma Schoonmaker's editing,All combines into a great film with a sensory experience like no other !!!
wow A really beautiful treat for the eye, mind, and spirit.
this film will make you totally engrossed and captivated .
it does all by capturing such a vast and complex culture and way of life via the cinematic lens.
When they couldn't film in Tibet, they filmed in Morocco. it more than made up for real locations you will definitely fell as if you are on the highest plateau of the world.
the use of colour and movement is stunning. The cinematography is beautiful, the awards this film received for this are well deserved...
. Scorsese took a brilliant approach to this film in many ways: -- Casting unknown actors: the Dalai Lama and the Tibetan people are unpretentious themselves, casting any names in the part would not only be ethnically sacrilegious, but would have missed the point.
the essence of that film simply goes deeper than most of our members of mankind are able or willing to follow.
This is the tragedy of Tibet - without any unnecessary outrage or false intellectualism.
'Kundun' goes a peaceful way that leads not to victory, but to the hearts of men.
I'm glad Scorsese sacrificed popularity for art's sake in this case. So the ones, that are ready for the journey may have a path.
.see it for yourself, and remain open to all the possibilities.......
