Never forget tibet review
This movie tells the incredible story of how China's most wanted man, the 14th Dalai Lama, escaped from Tibet in 1959. With the help of an Indian political officer, Har Mander Singh, who led him to safety, the enlightened spiritual leader recounts his escape on film in his own words for the first time with Golden Globe nominated Hugh Bonneville (Downton Abbey) narrating and featuring music from Grammy nominated Anoushka Shankar.
The movie aims to impart messages of tolerance, world peace and climate change to a global audience, as well as exploring themes of Tibetan culture, history, art and religion. It also provides a loving and compassionate look at the Dalai Lama's life and teachings.
It's a very interesting film and we're glad that Compassionate Films are bringing this documentary to UK cinemas soon. It's a really good story and we would highly recommend it to anyone who wants to learn more about the Dalai Lama, his history or even just about the Chinese invasion/occupation of Tibet.
Nevertheless, it's very amateurish and a lot of the editing, camera work and ponderous asides do get a little tedious after a while. It also isn't as interesting or as informative as we'd like it to be.
A very good film but a very amateurish one. Despite its faults it was still very interesting to watch and we'd definitely recommend it to those who want to know more about the Dalai Lama or the story of his escape from Tibet.
