Serbian PH.d student serves as our eyes into a Shaolin Monastery in China.

Completely beautiful portrait of the monastery and it’s teachings. It’s a look at a place that has been made legendary by countless martial arts flick.

Stunningly beautiful, this is in many ways a 90 minute commercial for the monastery. Its full of perfectly framed martial arts demonstrations and heading philosophical discussions. This is a film that is going to play in countless Asian Film Festivals because it is the movies made real.

I was for the most part entranced for the whole run time. While I was kind of disappointed in that it didn’t reveal anything I hadn’t seen before, it did delight me in that it took me away from New York for 90 minutes.
