Modern day retelling

of Prince Siddhartha coming face to face with Mara (the personification of the illusion of our ego self) and eventually realizing enlightenment to become the Buddha.

From the film, Little Buddha, by Bernando Bertolucci

The 3 daughters of Mara signifies the dark side that exist within every individual; Greed, Hatred and Ignorance.

A skinny Keanu Reeves apparently underwent a strict eating and exercise regime, portrays the Buddha.
