True story of Heinrich Harrer, an Austrian mountain climber who became friends with the Dalai Lama at the time of China's takeover of Tibet.
Why must you be this way? Why, why is there always a problem? It's a good question. Do you want to go home? Do you want to turn around?
Ingrid Harrer: Yes.
Heinrich Harrer: Would that make... It's the Himalayas! How long have I been talking about the Himalayas? How long?
The movie depicts the Dalai Lama's enthronement occurring after Germany surrenders in WWII, and after China invades Tibet. The actual Enthronement Ceremony took place on 22 February 1940, (Iron-Dragon Year, 1st month, 14th day), long before the end of the war and the Chinese invasion. On 17 November 1950 the Dalai Lama assumed full temporal (political) power over Tibet, more then 10 years after his Enthronement Ceremony.
As the end credits roll, a view of the mountains of Tibet is seen.
