Overview

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 Tibet, where Peter finds a wife and Heinrich befriends the Western culture-obsessed teenage Dalai Lama Jamyang Jamtsho Wangchuk, the spiritual leader of his Buddhist nation. As Heinrich waits out the war, his friendship with the Dalai Lama begins to transform him from haughty to humble, but a crisis with China looms. A controversy over the revelation of the real-life Harrer's Nazi Party affiliation brewed during the film's production, forcing Annaud to briefly deal with the subject in the film.

    amazing story of transformation! and a great inside peak at Tibet's essence

    I love watching this movie again. It may appear slow for those of you looking for physical action. Yet what draws me to this movie is the spiritual lessons learned by the characters and how an unexpected detour in life can bring to us what we need to experience most to live a fulfilling and peaceful life.

    seven years felt like a lifetime!

    Beautiful. sad. compassionate. humbling. Seven Years is all these compromised into a breathtaking whole. shot on location and starring Brad pitt as the arrogant Henirich herrer, a man for whom the sky is indeed the limit, is captured and begins his journey as man trying to find his place in the world. After many years of searching, he finds salvation and purpose in the form of Tibet and a young teenager, Namely the Dalai Lama. It is a moving story of two people from very different worlds forging a friendship that teaches with every day in each others prescence. Overall, Brad Pitt, Hollywoods pretty boy, gives an oscar worthy performance that is brave and moving.

    Super Brad Pitt

    Action, drama and even some suspense keep this movie moving. Brad Pitt's best work. Very nice portrayal of Tibetan Buddhism and accurate rendering of history is to be commended. Visually stunning cinematography.A pleasure to see more than once.
