From the Nobel Prize-winning novel by Herman Hesse ("Steppenwolf"), "Siddhartha" is the story of a young Brahmin who leaves his wealthy parents to become a 'sadhu', a wandering ascetic. Siddhartha meets and is awed by the Buddha, but chooses to follow his own path. His spiritual search leads him to sexual passion and material wealth. He finds these pleasures empty and abandons them. Eventually, he discovers enlightenment as a poor ferryman, learning tranquility from the river itself. "Siddhartha" is a glorious evocation of the Buddha and of each person's search for self-knowledge and the divine within. Filmed entirely on location in Northern India by the great cinematographer Sven Nykvist.
