Summary: 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!
Summary: While it take some time to get moving, this is a truly captivating film. It's about redemption and pain. It's about true events which cast the Tibetan culture against the Chinese's land grab. We have the Buddhists on the one hand, and the godless hordes on the other. The die is cast and all we can do is watch. This is a movie about a selfish character and his comrade who find respite in the Himalaya's in the temple of the Dalai Lama.
Excerpt: This is not your average shot em up action film. The Plot has some deep meaning so it is not a film for the shallow of mind or heart. Some breath taking scenery with outstanding PQ. Great true story!
Excerpt: I just happened to run across this movie on Blu-Ray browsing through my local FYE store and I've never seen it before so I decided to take a chance with it and I bought the only copy they had on Blu-Ray and boy was I suprised! This movie was perfection from beginning to end! This is by far Brad Pitts best performance in my opinion! The picture quality and sound was just perfect throughout the whole movie. This movie truly shines on Blu-Ray!!
Summary: 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.
One Of The Most Unique Adventures Of The Twentieth Century
6 March 2007
Summary: Tibet has certainly fascinated people all over the world. The hidden land in the most forbidding place on the planet not at either pole. In its day Lost Horrizon made quite a bit of money for its author James Hilton. But the real story of Heinrich Harrer is better than anything a fictional author could have thought up. Brad Pitt is Harrer in Seven Years In Tibet and this has become my favorite film of his.
Summary: This masterpiece, still makes me curious every time I see it. Brad Pitt does an amazing job portraying an Austrian, even down to his accent. The cinematography is extraordinary, and the direction is quite good. I love watching it every so often, and learning new things that I missed the times before. The film has a great amount of interesting facts, and takes place in the 1930's through '50's.
Summary: I saw this film for the first time last night after hearing a great many people recommend it to me. I don't know why I waited so long! This is a soul stirring movie that is perfect in its simplicity. I don't think it's the best performance Brad Pitt has ever offered, but he was quite good. David Thewlis (an amazing actor who never receives as much praise he deserves) gave a perfect performance. But the real beauty of the film is the Tibetan people and their lifestyle.
