SOUL ON A STRING REVIEWED
“Soul on a String” is a fantasy film that actually plays better than most of the Eastern fantasy I’ve watched recently. Playing as a mythic fable, the film begins with a hunter discovering a sacred stone in the mouth of a deer. From there, he ventures out to restore the stone to the mountain of Buddha. Along the way, the warrior has to decide what to make of the countrymen that attack him at every turn. While its introspective, there are a ton of subtle jabs at Eastern society mixed into the film. Give it a shot.

The Plot Thus Far
After discovering a sacred stone in the mouth of a deer, Taibei, a solitary Tibetan cowboy, embarks on a mission: to bring it back to the holy Mountain of Buddha’s Handprint. Pursued by black market traders who seek the priceless artifact for themselves, as well as two brothers seeking vengeance for the long-ago death of their father, Taibei’s journey will be a long and difficult one – even before it is thrown off course by strange, mystical events.
