The Buddhist concept of reincarnation, while both mysterious and enchanting, is hard for most Westerners to grasp. UNMISTAKEN CHILD follows the 4-year-search for the reincarnation of Lama Konchog, a world-renowned Tibetan master who passed away in 2001 at age 84. The Dalai Lama charges the deceased monk's devoted disciple, Tenzin Zopa (who had been in his service since the age of seven), to search for his master's reincarnation, a child who may be anywhere in the world. Tenzin sets off on foot, mule and even helicopter, through breathtaking landscapes and remote traditional Tibetan villages. He listens to stories about children with special characteristics, performs rituals and rarely seen tests designed to determine the likelihood of reincarnation, and eventually presents his chosen one to the Dalai Lama, who will make the final decision.

Superb Film Production All Around December 23, 2009
Reviewer: Paul Seaton from Woodstock, NY United States  
Pace, cinematography, music, subject all come together in this  production by Israeli, Nati Baretz.

The movie delves into the rebirth of a world renown Tibetan Buddhist Lama and takes the viewer into the death, rebirth and discovery of Geshe Lama Konchog. The movie focuses on Lama Tenzin Zopa's (Geshe Konchog's personal attendant) two year process of finding the child through divination and trek through the Tsum Valley near the Tibet/Nepal border to the recognition of the reincarnated master by HH the Dalai Lama and enthronement at Kopan Monastery.

The movie resonated with me for days. The film broke through the normal linear plot curve and left me convinced of deeper realities. The innocence of Zopa, the unpretentious and uncontrived script, the stunning scenery and understated music score all contributed to a unique film experience, one that can be relished more than once and certainly shared with friends...
