"Prepare yourself for an unparalleled sensory experience. Filmed over a period of almost five years and in twenty-five countries, SAMSARA explores the wonders of the world from sacred grounds to industrial sites, looking into the unfathomable reaches of man's spirituality and the human experience. Photographed entirely in 70mm, SAMSARA's mesmerizing images of unprecedented clarity illuminate the links between humanity and the rest of nature, showing how our life cycle mirrors the rhythms of the planet. Neither a traditional documentary nor a travelogue, SAMSARA is a guided meditation on the current of interconnection that runs through all of our lives"--Container.

A wonder-filled exposition of the variegation of humans in the early twenty-first century. A film to be astonished by at least once every year.

This is a beautiful work that shows human consumption up against nature. The film is gorgeous and moving although created uncomfortable feelings during moments of it. Highly recommended as a movie to engage the mind.

Samsara means (Sanskrit and Tibetan) "continuous flow", is the repeating cycle of birth, life, death and rebirth. Inspiring images and music capturing the interconnectedness of all life without the use of dialogue or text of any kind.
Loved it !

A beautiful and also deeply disturbing, painful movie. Beautiful juxtaposed against the nightmare that is our food addiction, gun addiction, and great need for "things." One to think about, but I would never watch it more than once.

I was looking to watching this, but to my disappointment the first disc is cracked and would not play in any of my DVD players :(

I too found the movie disturbing. Yes, some of the imagery is beautiful, but some of it is just too over the top. You don't know if the next theme is going to be one you love or one that makes you sick. Usually I love movies off the beaten path but I couldn't make it through this one.

Thanks to ktnv's pointer on "continuous flow". It is more of Baraka, film by the same producers, which showcased some of the best, and worse, parts of nature and human life. This time with spectacular footages on religious sites and artifacts mixed in with raw images on human behavior, from modern slaughter houses to a transsexual beauty contest.

Frightening or Intense Scenes: I watched with my kids but had to fast forward a scene when an office worker creates different faces/images with clay and paint. The use of red and black paint was amazing (watched it again without kids) but too creepy for my little ones.
