Acclaimed by critics and audiences throughout the world, "Why Has Bodhi-Dharma Left For The East?" is simply one of the most ravishing films ever made. In a remote monastery high up in the mountains, an old master, a young monk and an orphaned boy devote themselves to their Buddhist teachings. As the master faces death, he must lead his disciples away from their past ties to the outside world and its rapidly changing values, and point them toward their quest for enlightenment. The title of the film is a Zen 'koan' - an unanswerable riddle that is both a challenge and an aid on the path to spiritual transformation. This magnificent film, astonishingly rich in its formal beauty and affirmation of life, is not only an extraordinary cinematic gem but a transcendent evocation of the mystery and humanity of Zen Buddhism.
