Unfortunately for Seven Years in Tibet, its focus is on the wrong guy. Harrer may be a fascinating figure in real life, but he never shows up here. The guy we're watching is never anyone but 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.

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...

One of the season's more substantial large-scale entertainments, using colorful storytelling and Pitt's appealing presence to spotlight an imperialistic event that continues to cry for correction.

Pitt is no disgrace but is blown off the screen by a bright-eyed adolescent actor.

Absolutely beautifully photographed, deeply respectful of Tibetan culture, and more than a bit tedious.
