Details Reviews
Hollywood Buddha is the story of Philippe, a down and out European film producer, who lives in a tent in the shadow of his unfinished house in Brentwood. Philippe is struggling to sell a film he made five years ago to foreign distributors. Nearly broke, and on the verge of eviction, he seeks spiritual help from Master Atchoum, a Buddhist Guru. Master Atchoum pushes him into practicing Buddhism and convinces him to buy an expensive metal sculpture of Buddha. Empowered by the support of his new-found "religion," Philippe starts turning things around. Through a series of serendipitous events...and some very unorthodox maneuvering, he becomes a success. But, he soon discovers that all is not what it appears to be...

    loved it!!!

  • Fun movie - odd memoirish smart self-mocking in a weird way by Knox B on Mar 28, 2014

    I saw this when it came out a couple years ago at the Laemle Sunset theater ... there weren't many people in the audience. I fully enjoyed the movie, as did my meta-new-age-self- proclaimed-psychic female companion, as did everyone in attendance. It's partially a story of Mr. Calande's attempt to sell a weird movie he had already made and could not let go of ... and he's in the middle of building a house ... and runs out of money ... rents a Buddha's head for $2000 a month and his luck changes ... floating around Hollywood ... As we left the theater that evening, Mr. Calande was standing in the back. We stopped and talked for a moment. He was very charming, and clearly intelligent. My friend was swooning for him. I'd love to see the movie again. I hope it comes out on DVD.
