"Have the news found you that I left the world of dust with joy / and turned my feet to the southern cliff of the Icy Mountain?" writes hermit Hanshan in his solitude to describe the path to the truth in the spirit of the Chan tradition which has inspired Kerouac's Dharma Bums as well as this film of the Portugese filmmaker.
