Seven Years in Tibet
Seven Years in Tibet is a 1997 American movie directed by Jean-Jacques Annaud. The Austrian climber Heinrich Harrer takes part in a Himalayan expedition in 1939, although his wife is pregnant. At the Nanga Parbat the egomaniac gets together with the expedition leader Peter Aufschnaiter - but their conflict is interrupted. As the Second World War breaks out, the British colonial power brings the brawlers into the internment camp. Only in 1944 they manage to break out. Reluctantly, Harrer and Aufschnaiter clash and flee to nearby Tibet together. There, on the roof of the world, Harrer makes friends with Tenzin Gyatso, the 14th Dalai Lama.
