A German adventurer heads east and ends up as mentor of the young Dalai Lama. This sentence would probably stop a lot of people from going to the trouble of watching this movie, I know...I was one of those people.  I procrastinated for a few weeks before renting a copy of Seven Years In Tibet. I had heard some of the hype, something which I try to turn a blind eye to, as more often than not I find that I am left bitterly disappointed. This movie proved me wrong.

Brad Pitt ranks highly in my category of favourite actors so for that reason alone I finally took out the video and watched it with my husband. In my books "Pitt" has never made a bad movie and his performance in Seven Years in Tibet was outstanding. Of course the script in itself was brilliant, as were the other actors and the scenery can only be described as breathtaking.

Pitt plays the role of Heinrich Harrer, a mountain-climber who, at the beginning of the movie leaves you feeling like you want to give him a good thrashing. By the end of the movie however, not only do you not want it all to end but you are left with the feeling that you want to find out more about this extraordinary man and the Dalai Lama whom he befriends.

You watch the metamorphosis of a man, his companion (Thewlis) and the Dalai Lama. You see their insecurities and their strength's in the face of adversity.

The following gives my opinions about the movie but there are also a lot of 'spoilers'...if you haven't seen this movie think twice about reading any further as it may tell you a little more than you would want to know. At the end of this review there is a page about the superb acting. If you don't want to read the full review you can jump straight to the last page
