Seven Years in Tibet 

| 1997 | English

The story is a true account of how Heinrich Harrer, a former Nazi SS member, became something of a tutor to the current Dalai Lama, and learned as much about himself in the process as the Dalai Lama learned from him. A strong friendship developed between the two that would last the rest of their lives. This happens in the backdrop of China's takeover of Tibet.
