Two thumbs up
Thank you for a short but informative movie. If this movie is to raise public awareness of this part of the world, then it was able to serve its purpose. This movie is worth watching.
What strikes me most is the purity of heart of the Tibetans. The movie shows that generally, Tibetans are trusting people, welcoming strangers (like Gayu) with open arms and are content with simple living. But just like any other living things, their survival instinct forces them to be heartless and hurt each other when they have to.
Faith is another virtue the Tibetans possess as shown in the movie. Their faith give them strength to face whatever unforeseen danger is coming. Generally, faith is the reason that people of whatever culture survive their most tragic experience. With faith, they know that there is light at the end of the tunnel, that life is better tomorrow. I would like to share that with my Christian faith, i was able to survive the hardships and pain with great optimism because I believe that no matter what happens, with my faith in Jesus, even if my physical body leaves this earth, there is God’s kingdom waiting for me in the afterlife.
I’ve seen movies of other cultures, and what I can say is that, regardless of culture, the expression of emotion is universal and love is innate in people’s heart. Expressed in many ways, emotion and love are intertwined; they can never be separated. If only love could be the basis for everyone to do what is right for the other, then this earth where we live could be a better place. Love of self is fine, but too much self love is selfish and is toxic. We have to remember that life is too short and it could be lived better if love is shared with others…
