In this drama by Khyentse Norbu, an entrepreneur from Kathmandu seeks the spiritual enlightenment after receiving disturbing visions.
In Khyentse Norbu "Looking for asoul with fangs and mustache ", a Nepalese entrepreneur seeks spiritual enlightenment, in hopes of avoiding a fatal prophecy. Seeking to set up a new cafe, Tenzin (Tsering Tashi Gyalthang) sees disturbing visions after exploring an abandoned temple.With growing fear, he follows the gnomic suggestions of a toned Buddhist monk and a wise master, who insists he find a manifest goddess on earth, known as the name of dakini.
Writer-director Norbu , a leading Buddhist spiritual man making his fifth feature film, presents Tenzin as a modern, trendy guy in bluejeans with a broad smile that disappears as soon as he has to seek self-awareness. The warm streets of Kathmandu become like a place without a map for Tenzin as he scans strangers who pass by in search ofsigns of femininity
Mark Lee Ping Bing, the magician of Wong Kar-wai king director of photography, films spooky riverbanks and saturated views of the countryside. As I scanned the sites and people with Tenzin, I started to worry about missing something too, wondering if I was misreading the signs or lingering over the disjointed game of my head. Yet, at least for the uninitiated, the drift of cinema seemed to fall short of the transcendence envisioned by its history.
