Typically impressive natural vistas from director Jean-Jacques Annaud (some secretly filmed on location in Tibet) highlight this adaptation of the memoir by Heinrich Harrer. Brad Pitt stars as the arrogant Heinrich, a famed Austrian mountain climber who leaves behind his wife and infant son to head a Himalayan expedition in 1939, only to fall into the hands of Allied forces as a prisoner of war. He and a fellow escapee, Peter Aufschnaiter (David Thewlis), make their way to the Forbidden City in

Pitt is smiling, taking his shirt off, brushing his blond locks with his hands, striking poses against the picturesque scenery--in short, being Brad Pitt.
Part road picture, part epic, and part spiritual journey, Seven Years in Tibet is a beautiful film with a story so typical-yet-unusual that it could only have come from autobiography.
I was expecting the worst -- everyone calls this film "Seven Hours in a Theater." But really, it's pretty good
Failed to convince me that Harrer moved from a self-absorbed bigot to an enlightened being, especially since his memoir never mentioned his Nazi past.
Most will likely forget about Seven Years in Tibet soon after viewing since the filmmakers have focussed on less interesting aspects
Ainda tenho aquela sensação de que poderia ter me emocionado muito com esta história.
An egotistical Austrian undergoes a spiritual transformation through his contact with Tibetan Buddhists.
Annaud and screenwriter Becky Johnston's view of the Tibetans isn't much more sophisticated than James Hilton's depiction of the inhabitants of Shangri-La in 'Lost Horizon': They're mostly serene mystics...
Absolutely beautifully photographed, deeply respectful of Tibetan culture, and more than a bit tedious.
After more than an hour of solemn preparation, we get ... Brad Pitt showing a kid how to drive a car and work a radio. Wow.
