(Great Britain/Germany/France, 2001, 86 minutes)
In feudal India, a mercenary warrior repents after a mystical vision but finds it's not that easy to leave warrior ways behind. Strikingly photographed and handled but rather thinly-scripted legend; gorgeous to look at, not much of a plot to carry it.
