Buddha Mountain is a soliloquy on the parameters of young dreams, life destination, the conditions that define love. Set against the backdrop of the mountainous scenery of the Chengdu region of China, the film weaves together two narratives, that of a retired Peking Opera singer with that of three young friends who have just left their family homes chasing independence and autonomy. Three friends, Ding Bo, Nan Feng, and Fatso have finished school but have gone against parental pressure, refusing to write university entrance exams to continue their educations, resulting in disapproval and strife. Restless to start their own lives, independent from that of family, they decided to leave their parents’ homes, and work their own way up. The friends rent rooms in the home of the former Peking Opera singer, Chang Yue Qin and run into Changs’s bitter life. As the narrative unfolds, past secrets in Master Chang’s life are uncovered by the three friends, and are catalyst to unexpected events and personal growth. These events lead to an increasing understanding between the four, ultimately offering the possibility of acceptance and movement toward individual destinies. Through the metaphors of travel, natural destruction and natural beauty, the film questions the social parameters of love and destiny, and offers the possibility of an individual to control and dictate his or her own future. Drawing upon the Practice of Buddha Mountain does not attempt to provide answers, but instead leaves the viewer to speculate upon there thoughts for him or herself.
