European Premiere

Young Buddhist monk Ananda, arrives at a temple in order to restore its paintings. These paintings depict Thelapaththa Jathakaya, a moral story where Lord Buddha said that a man with a big target in life must not be swayed by passion (Keles), the five senses and especially beautiful women. One day, Ananda picks up a hair pin belonging to a young woman. While attempting to return this object to its owner, his repressed feelings are awoken by the beauty and sensuality of the woman. The young monk's inner spiritual world is plunged into turmoil.
This unfairly unknown masterpiece is one of the best reflections (or better said “meditations”) on (unfulfilled) desire. A debut feature, which reminds Kim Ki-duk’s best works (less the cruelty).
