Fancy Dance

A real charmer about a young university student with his own rock band who also happens to come from a long line of Buddhist priests. To continue the family tradition he must spend a year as a novice, but in doing so he finds that the other monks all have secret lives. Broad laughs mix with a genuine feel for spiritual life in this popular comedy.
