2 days, 4 movies

In the first two days of the year, I managed to watch 4 films, which I wanted to share with you (and recommend!).

1. Seven years in Tibet

“A 1997 film based on the book Seven Years in Tibet written by Austrian mountaineer Heinrich Harrer on his experiences in Tibet between 1944 and 1951 during the Second World War, the interim period, and the Chinese People’s Liberation Army’s invasion of Tibet in 1950.”

2. Trading Places
