Set in Tibet, this adventure blending Buddhist spiritual elements with classic Western motifs follows a lonely hunter who discovers a sacred stone in the mouth of a deer he just killed. Thoughtful and philosophical with a surprising sardonic streak, Soul on a String achieves an impressive balance between Eastern teachings and typical Western themes.
“After being hit by a thunderbolt, [the hunter] is revived by a lama and told to take the stone to Palm Print Mountain as penance to cleanse his many sins. The difficult journey attracts an odd bunch of followers: Pu (Yizi Danzeng), a mute scalawag with psychic powers; Gedan (Siano Dudiom Zahi), a mysterious stalker; Zandui (Solange Nima), a wanderer with a wondrously daffy dog.” —Variety
