The Tibetans refer to the Dalai Lama as 'Kundun', which means 'The Presence'. He was forced to escape from his native home, Tibet, when communist China invaded and enforced an oppressive regime upon the peaceful nation of Tibet. The Dalai Lama escaped to India in 1959 and has been living in exile in Dharamsala ever since.

Movie Parental Guide

nudity None
violence moderately disturbing scenes.
profanity None.
alcohol "A character is briefly shown snorting opium". One cannot "snort" opium. Tibetans were accustomed (especially well-to-do affluent Tibetans) to taking snuff - Tobacco snuff. Opium was not unknown but considered a Chinese affectation.
frightening moderately disturbing (historical) scenes. One of the scenes depicting violence done to the Tibetan people is more poetic imagery than actually violent The other scene that is difficult shows a tribal funeral, and the pragmatic end of the discarded body. The aforementioned funeral was not a "tribal" funeral but one four types of funeral being called "Sky burial" which film makers love showing for shock value. The other types, less graphic, albeit were earth burial, fire burial and water burial. OFFICIAL MPAA - Rated PG-13 for violent images. OFFICIAL BBFC - (12A): occasional horror images.
