Excellent, Epic, Tragic… Brilliant.
The reaction this film got at the Pusan International Film Festival (PIFF) in Pusan, South Korea, was better than any of the other big movies there.
This movie gets a 10 out of 10 from me. It is a harsh story about Germany in the 30s as the Nazis were rising and wishing to prove to the world that they were the best. The tale is about two German men who take on a very difficult climb. The story is quite riveting, and human. Full of laughs, tragedy, and … a little bit of a love story.
Although the movie starts a little slowly, it really picks up about one third the way in. The main characters (the two mountain climbers and the one female love interest) are all solid actors, well directed, and well casted. The director did a great job at capturing the climb. Everything was so convincingly shot, it makes you wonder if they actually filmed some of it on a real mountain. I suppose they must have used CGI, but it was used so sparingly and realistically that it must be commended. The contrast between the plight of the mountain climbers and that of the rich bystanders makes the movie so much more emotionally riveting. Some people in the audience cried.
This is a tragedy that must be seen. It captures humanity at its best and worst… and shows us that sometimes nature rules our lives, and that it is not forgiving.
Overall, I felt this movie was a small masterpiece. One that will probably not be seen by many. But for those who do, you will get a very special treat…
It was especially amazing to know that you, as the viewer, had more than a telescope to watch this climb with… unlike the bystanders in the movie, we were able to see more than just the ascent and the final moment. We saw the part that mattered the most: the climb.
This is a beautifully shot film, and captures the feel of 1930’s Germany. The actors are very believable and the climbing scenes and scenery, stunning. I wondered how they filmed the climbing scenes so realistically, and found out in the extras that although they employed special effects and CGI images, they are so realistic and well integrated that you absolutely cannot tell where they used the effects. The storyline is gripping, made even more so knowing that the movie was based on actual events. The actual account on Wikipedia is even more heartbreaking. Easily one of the best mountaineering movies out there, along with “Touching the Void”.
