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.
The real Heinrich Harrer joked that "Brad Pitt was a terrible choice to play me. At that age I was much better looking than him."
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 music of Lotte Lenya singing "Mack the Knife" while Harrer is in the British POW camp was not recorded until 1955, more than a decade after the time the scene took place.
As the end credits roll, a view of the mountains of Tibet is seen.
