5.0 out of 5 stars Breathtaking, 18 May 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: North Face [DVD] [2008] (DVD)
I too have done Mont Blanc. I too found it difficult. I've read all the usual Eiger melodrama climbing literature and will have life long respect for the mountain and those with the cojones to tackle it; not me for a moment.
Forget historical lip service; this film is the movies
But Boy, is it "the movies"
For the mountaineer absolute respect for the courage of the fated four. At a time in Mountaineering history as Walter Bonatti reminds us in " Mountains of my Life", risk was accentuated manyfold
For the "actors" and stunt providers, just terrific
For the makers, you can't truly do Mountaineering surely and not respect this film
Don't be put off by the subtiitles; you don't notice
For Toni Kurz an immortal alpinist
Thank you
Just excellent
