Seven Years in Tibet

Most of the shooting took place in Argentina, in the city of La Plata (the train station where Heinrich leaves for Unserberg is the Main Train Station of La Plata, for example), and in the Mendoza Province, in such places as the Andes chain of mountains.

Motorcycle Diaries

In a journey that lasts eight months, the partners travel over 14000 kilometers, from Argentina through Chile, Peru, and Colombia to Venezuela. Key locations along the journey described in the film include: In Argentina: Buenos Aires, Miramar, Buenos Aires, Villa Gesell, San Martín de los Andes, Lago Frías, Patagonia and Nahuel Huapi Lake. Ernesto and Alberto, and their long-suffering Norton, La Poderosa, start out from Buenos Aires, Argentina, passing through the city’s Plaza Once, and stopping at first to visit Ernesto’s posh girlfriend, Chichina, who’s staying in Miramar, on the coast about 200 miles south of Buenos Aires which, in the 50s, was a rich, and exclusively white, resort. The journey proper finds the pair heading west toward the Chilean border. The film skips quickly across Argentina to the beautifully photogenic Lake District and the lakeside village of Villa la Angostura, in the south of Neuquen province, at the northeastern shore of Lago Nahuel Huapi. At the lake’s southern tip, San Carlos de Bariloche, Ernesto is taken ill, after wading into the freezing water to retrieve the duck shot down by Alberto, and they spend the night at the railway station, before crossing the border into Chile at Lago Frias, where mountains rise dramatically from the lake’s waters.
