In Chengdu, China, a retired female opera singer named Master Chang takes in a trio of young tenants into her boarding home. The tenants include a rock singer and a college student who has run away from home. Buddha Mountain is about a group of young people who share a house, all trying to find love in their desperate and chaotic lives.
Nan Fang is tough, care free bar singer, Ding Bo is a illegal courier who's avoiding college entrance exam and Fatso is his side kick with no apparent job. This three party hard, hop freight trains, get into trouble again to solve it in same carefree manner. They lodge with a Peking opera bluff when they are evicted from their apartment. How they deal with this huge generation gap on their own when they are also dealing with their own problems covers the rest of the story.
This movie is well scripted, very well edited, good ost and has a solid cast. I have to mention the cinematography which is so real that it gives you the feel as if you're actually there. The view from the train top and bridge makes me want to go there right now.
Lastly, I will recommend it to anyone willing to watch a soulful tale of love and loss.
