Encyclopedia > Enlightenment Guaranteed

Enlightenment Guaranteed (2002) is a film directed by Doris Dörrie about two brothers, Uwe (Uwe Ochsenknecht) and Gustav (Gustav-Peter Wohler), who travel to Japan to sort out the mess of their lives. Their plan is to visit the Sojiji Monastery in Monzen, near Tokyo. On their way there, in a rather literal Buddhist moment, they lose all of their belongings. When they at last make it to the monastery, they find that even there, enlightenment can be elusive.

This film could almost be a sequel to Men..., Dorrie's landmark '80s film with the same starring actors (albeit as different characters) and a similar existential storyline, and was sometimes billed as such.
