This review is from: Seven Years In Tibet [DVD]  (DVD)This is a nice film based upon Heinrich Harrer's true experiences in the Himalyas. It is in parts funny and in other parts moving.
However, having read the book and the Dalai Lama's memoirs, the film is not as true to historical events as it could be.
Also, I felt that rather than acting and becomming Heinrich Harrer, Brad Pitt plays himself. He could be acting the role of Tyler Durden in Fight Club or Rusty Ryan from Ocean's Eleven.
Watch it if you want to spend an evening in watching an enjoyable and decent film, but if you're expecting historical accuracy I wouldn't recommend it.
