Synopsis

Director Martin Scorsese is best known for his tough and sometimes brutal tales of life on the edge, often referencing his own background growing up a Catholic among the wiseguys and gangsters of New York's Little Italy. In Kundun he takes on a very different story - this biopic follows the life of the Dalai Lama, the spiritual leader of Tibetan Buddhism and the political leader of the Tibetan people. The story spans from his birth, or reincarnation, as the son of a poor family to his eventual flight to exile in India as an 'enemy' of the Chinese authorities over the question of freedom for Tibet, seen by many as under Chinese occupation. Kundun contains some subtitled dialogue.
