Visitor Comments
Ronald Smart: Fed up with police cars screaming through the streets of New York/San Francisco/city of your choice?? Then enjoy this change of scene and pace. A good movie, well acted and with some beautiful scenery (even if it wasn't all filmed in Tibet). Sit on while the credits roll at the end and enjoy the music.

Eve Sparks: Oy vay! Boring! If it wasn't for Brad Pitt's gorgeous face, I would have fallen asleep.

Deby Jazz: Brad pitt really is extremely stunning but I did not like the movie. It was boring!

Bruce Humphrey: I agree with Ronald. This movie has an interesting story line and some breathtakingly beautiful scenery. City life isn't so bad though - exposure to the elements is tough in the highest and most isolated country in the world (Tibet). As the lady said: It is a fools's pleasure to walk up hills. I thought Brad Pitt and David Thewlis acted very well. An art type movie which I really enjoyed.

Brad Smith: Very deep movie.

Mujahid Fredericks: Terrible really terrible sucking dumb crap movie which is very boring and I definitely fell asleep (snore snore snore)

Jan Eckert: Superb!

Chivonne Stagman: The kind of movie that makes you think and want to know more about history and Brad Pitt of course !
