You don’t get to choose your parents, the old saying goes, and apparently, you don’t get to choose your past lives, either. Yeshi is the son of exiled Tibetan Buddhist master Chögyal Namkhai Norbu, but Tibetan elders believe Yeshi is actually the reincarnation of his father’s uncle, who died 10 years before Yeshi was born. Yeshi was raised in the West, so how can he live up to the traditions and his own calling? My Reincarnation covers a lot of ground—the production took 20 years of director Jennifer Fox’s life—but that doesn’t make the movie any better. In essence, it just gives her more note cards pinned to the bulletin board. And that’s really the problem with this movie: How much do you boil all of that stuff down? Is it an interesting story? Sure. But not that interesting.
