Its all about spies and western nations propaganda. the irony of this true story is that this happened when Germans are fighting the West over some racial issues and also a test of military superiority, in the process killing millions and here you have thier spy explaining to dalai lama how great the west is. what a joke. And Dalai also clueless fellow. the hero is running away rom capture by white gus i.e. british and then he wants to explain to dalai how good it is in the west. Great movie but very slow. i watched this in 1998 itself to see bard pit in action and since I just arrived in the summer in USA and having watch world cup football on TV all summer this was a good change after 11 years with India inc asshles, munks, pmps. so the title sort of resonates like a song on a bluesy note with pentatonic scales adding to the country feeling. However of all Brad pitt movies Meet joe black is much better. I saw this Tibet movie on a very chilly night in December at a AMC theatre(mid west) as ticket price was only $1. such historical factual movies, in a few months even new movies go on sale for a dollar. the theatre was empty. i and my driver i.e. my brother, had a good laugh as we could sit like chairmen in the theatre legs on top of the front row, popcorns and soft drinks. I slept most of time but woke up often to see Brad struggling.
