Forget that this is a Scorsese movie, 'cos there's not a gangster or a grifter in sight. Stunningly shot, this is the visually breathtaking account of the early life of the 14th Dalai Lama, starting with his discovery by Buddhist monks in the northern Tibet of 1935.

An awesome period piece and a superb look into a very strange occupation. A must for anyone who liked Vera Drake. find out more...
