This Week's Film: Little Buddha
Cuisine: Bhutanese

Synopsis: Bernardo Bertolucci directs and Keanu Reeves stars with Bridget Fonda in a tale that centers around a search for the reincarnation of a Tibetan monk that begins in the city of Seattle, and travels all the way to Bhutan to verify which of three children may be the true buddha. Woven into the contemporary tale is the story of Siddhartha. Join me throughout the week on Chopstick Cinema for a closer look at the food and the film. My film review will be posted at the end of the week, along with my Bhutanese recipe.
