If any of you are familiar with Keanu Reeves’ expansive film repertoire, then you may have seen the mesmerizing film, “Little Buddha”. Now, whether you have seen it or not, this Blog posts importance is to give special condolences regarding the passing of a veritable cinematic maestro, the phenomenally-talented Bernardo Bertolucci. Although he directed “Little Buddha”, he was also well-known for directing the world-renowned film, “The Last Emperor”.

It is unfortunate that Bernardo Bertolucci has passed on during this joyous and festive holiday season. Yet, I could easily see that my Muse, Keanu Reeves, and this famed director shared a special camaraderie and rapport with mutual respect. Keanu always possessed admiration of Bertolucci’s pioneering work in films, as well. And this is why he was so enthused about having been cast in the part of “Saddartha” (aka the “Buddha”), in “Little Buddha”.

Brief Synopsis: “Lama Norbu comes to Seattle in search of the reincarnation of his dead teacher, Lama Dorje. His search leads him to young Jesse Conrad, Raju, a waif from Kathmandu, and an upper class Indian girl. Together, they journey to Bhutan where the three children must undergo a test to prove which is the true reincarnation. Interspersed with this, is the story of Siddhartha, later known as the Buddha. It traces his spiritual journey from ignorance to true enlightenment.” Written by Samantha Santa Maria via imdb.com

Little Buddha” was quite an epic adventure of its time; especially, the particulars surrounding Keanu’s Saddartha” characters way of life. In actuality, “Little Buddha” consists of mystical elements regarding spirituality, demonic presences and attacks, and the most celestial and terrestrial spiritual battle; pitting good against evil. And most importantly, it appears to be an experience which unified Keanu Reeves and Bernardo Bertolucci in a close and timeless bond. It certainly appears that Bertolucci shall be yet another unforgettable individual indelibly ingrained upon my Muse, Keanu’s, memory and benevolent spirit.

Keanu Reeves in “Little Buddha”!

Image result for taffey tawanna championHello, all! And welcome to Miss TaffeytheChamp’s Blog.

{Keanu Reeves Image from: https://i.pinimg.com/236x/6a/ba/b3/6abab38cb108bf14c4644fdad4965340.jpg}

Are any of you familiar with Keanu Reeves’ expansive film repertoire? If you are, you may be familiar with the film, “Little Buddha”. Now, whether you are or not, this shall be our focal topic of discussion this week.

{Keanu Reeves in Little Buddha cover Image from: https://s.s-bol.com/imgbase0/imagebase3/large/FC/0/3/5/7/1002004000087530.jpg}

Little Buddha” is quite an intriguing and intricate film with more than one tale being spun. Keanu Reeves portrays the character “Saddartha” (aka the “Buddha”), who was originally born and raised as a privileged Hindu prince. I must admit that my MuseKeanu Reeves, appeared magnificently attractive dressed in such elegant splendor and finery whilst dwelling among such magnificent opulence.

{Keanu Reeves Image from: https://i.pinimg.com/originals/ff/ac/0b/ffac0bf4a90d2a0d631bf66f1f8efeec.jpg}

Well, as I’ve said before, the word attractive should be Keanu Reeves’ nickname (in this lady’s opinion); whether he is in full make-up or simply appearing in au naturel mode. But, the glamorous outfits and beauteous make-up truly made Keanu’s male beauty shine throughout this film; including, Keanu’s enticing athletic physique with adorable bow-legged appeal, being gloriously displayed infinitely throughout this entrancing film. Initially, “Saddartha”, was both quite innocent and ignorant in the ways of the world.

{Keanu Reeves Image from: https://i.pinimg.com/originals/5a/03/c8/5a03c8834dbbca5178ed4b3d3aa946ac.jpg}

This film, “Little Buddha”, concerns the journey of some monks, headed by a gentleman named “Lama Norbu” (portrayed by Ruocheng Ying), to seek out the potential reincarnation of his beloved and expert Buddhist teacher, “Lama Dorje” (portrayed by Geshe Tsultim Gyeltsen). For some reason, he, and the other monks, believed that they had found a being of “Lama Dorje’s” reincarnation in a little boy, by the name of, “Jesse Conrad” (portrayed by Alex Wiesendanger), in the city of Seattle. “Jesse Conrad” was quite noticeably in awe, of both the monks, and of their way of life.

{Keanu Reeves Image from: https://i.kinja-img.com/gawker-media/image/upload/s–BfNBEKBf–/18s3npogjr3xejpg.jpg}

But, “Jesse’s” parents, “Dean” (portrayed by Chris Isaak), and “Lisa” (portrayed by Bridget Fonda), were quite skeptical about such an amazing belief. Such skepticism almost became acrimony when “Lama Norbu” informed them that he was very interested in taking little “Jesse Conrad” back to Bhutan with him, and his troupe, to endure some investigatory testing. Yet, “Jesse’s” father did alter his thinking when he discovered that someone close to him had committed suicide.

Apparently, Isaac’s character, “Dean”, began to realize that no one should base his or her life upon obtaining material goods and acquiring wealth. Anyway, the most intriguing part of these tales, was the story of Keanu’s character, “Saddartha”. “Saddartha’s” story, regarding his own journey of seeking enlightenment, was conveyed by “Lama Norbu” to the young “Jesse”; as I suppose he felt it was important for “Jesse” to learn about their cultural background and way of life.

Please feel free to read the intriguing Rotten Tomatoes Movie Review of approval by a Top Critic below the web link: https://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/little_buddha/

“Bertoluccis celebrated burnt-orange-and-burnished-lemon look remains handsome, and the story itself still commands some interest as a pivot into daunting material.” Written by Jonathan Rosenbaum of Chicago Reader; a Top Critic

{Keanu Reeves Image from: https://fpmt.org/wp-content/uploads/img_pdf/2001/keanureeves.jpg?x25788}

This film was quite an epic adventure of its time; particularly, the constituents surrounding Keanu’sSaddartha” characters way of life. I mean, “Little Buddha”, is comprised of mystical elements concerning spirituality, demonic presences and attacks, and the most celebrated spiritual battle; pitting good against evil. Overall, this was a rather interest-piquing film by the masterful director, Bernardo Bertolucci. Please feel free to watch it, for those of you who have not.
