Bruce Humphrey: True story of the Dalai Lama (Buddist faith) in Tibet. A slow-moving but beautifully done movie if you can appreciate Eastern philosophy. I really enjoyed the part when the movie brings out the irony of Red Communist: Mao Tse Tung stating that ''Religion is poison!'' while drawing elegantly on a cigarette. His hacking, cancerous cough could not hide the truth! A movie that will only be enjoyed by a select audience.
