The movie tells Tibets struggle and real true story,how it was, how it's been occupied. I enjoyed this movie, it was very pleasant to watch. The film takes us to a World many of us have not seen or know about. The the beautiful mountain landscapes and the music performed by John Williams alone makes it worth watching. You learn alot about Buddhist practices and traditions. Very educational!

Pitt's accent is terrible. I expected more from him. This movie was very slow, and I couldn't connect with the point. I know the point, but thought it could have been told in a more interesting way. Pitt fans will be disappointed.

Seven Years in Tibet

Seven Years in Tibet (1997) PG-13 The true story of Heinrich Harrer (Brad Pitt), an Austrian mountain climber who, while in India, is imprisoned by the British. He escapes and makes his way to Tibet. There he befriends the Dali Lama (Jamyang Jamtsho Wangchuk) and becomes his tutor. Heinrich is there to see the invasion of the land by the Chinese. This is a beautiful film, and Pitt gives a multi-layered performance, and his scenes with the Dali Lama are magical. The film is a little dull at times (I would have liked to have seen the film done from the perspective of the kid instead of Harrer), but its gorgeous to watch and Pitt gives one of his better performances. My Rating: Bargain Matinee - See more at:
