  • A monk searches for the reincarnation of his dead master in this intriguing documentary. Under orders from the Dalai Lama himself, Tenzin Zopa roams the Tibetan countryside for four years, administering special tests to children until he finds the correct child.
  • Critic Reviews
    "The beauty of the landscape and the monk's sweetness, humility and good humor evoke a plane of existence, at once elevated and austere, that is humbling to contemplate."
    New York Times

    "Baratz is fortunate to have a guide as quietly charismatic and sympathetic as Tenzin Zopa, a 28-year-old charged with carrying out this spiritual mission....UNMISTAKEN CHILD allows the mysteries of the process to be preserved without judgment." -- Grade: B
    A.V. Club

    "UMISTAKEN CHILD does more than take you inside a closed culture in an almost unreachable part of the world....Its privileged glimpse deep into unfamiliar spiritual territory has the strength of revelation."
    Los Angeles Times

    "[A] fascinating documentary....Seldom has film presented such a richly ambiguous juxtaposition of modernity, ancient mindset and, to be sure, possible miraculousness."
    Wall Street Journal

    "[A]dorable, moving, bewildering, sad and, ultimately, peaceful..."
    Washington Post
