Travellers and Magicians (2005)

Only available in United States

Mystical journeys of spiritual discovery are set against the spectacular, evocative landscape of the remote kingdom of Bhutan in Travellers and Magicians. Young government official Dondup dreams of escaping to America while stuck in a ravishingly beautiful but isolated village.

But when he misses his bus to the city (and an awaiting visa), Dondup is forced to hitchhike with an elderly apple seller, a sage young monk, an old man and his beautiful daughter. Along the way, the mischievous monk tells Dondup a story of another young man who sought a land far away: a tale of lust, jealousy and murder that holds up a mirror to the restless Dondup and his blossoming attraction to the innocent young woman.

Directed by Khyentse Norbu (also known as Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche, one of Himalayan Buddhism’s most revered lamas who made his feature directing debut with the monks-who-soccer sleeper The Cup), this critical and box-office hit magnificently intertwines twin love stories for an enchanting, unforgettable film that is filled with heart, hope and humor.

Enjoyable movie. The grass is always greener on the other side. Except it isn't.

This movie touched me in many ways, I am an immigrant in this country, and I can relate to the officer of government caracter, now at this time of my life, I can appreciate and admire the simplicity of life and I yearn for it.
