needs to learn there are only so
many epic shots of the Tibetan
countryside audiences can take.
Annaud also caves into the stereo
types of the evil Chinese and the
innocent Tibetans. At one point in
the film, he even dominates the
film with red flares as “Red China”
massacres the Tibetans.
Seven Yqars in Tibet offers an
interesting look at the Tibetans,
but nothing powerful comes
from the film. With thousands of
people killed and an entire reli
gious order forced to flee, one
would think they could find
something more interesting to
focus on than a tailor asking Pitt
to take off his clothes so she can
measure him.
But then again, a shirtless Pitt
is what gets on “Entertainment
Tonight” and not some bald 14-
year-old with the fate of an entire
people in his hands.
