Fictional climbing story loosely based on real events with a ludicrous love story entwined,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: North Face [DVD]  (DVD)
Good shots of the Eiger and climbing sequences but the film was spoilt by a ridiculous love story which in the closing themes was actually hilarious for its stupidity. Worth the £3.63 I paid for it but not much more. Far better gripping factual films already exist about this episode of Eiger North Face. Should please those who like factual stories to be embellished with fairy tales - a bit like Cameron's Titanic with the fatuous love story of Kate Winslet and Dicaprio.
