Movie Info

Stephen Judson's documentary The Alps transports audiences to the majestic yet incomparably deadly ice wall known as The Eiger, situated nearly fourteen thousand feet about Switzerland. At that location, a courageous alpinist whose father died in a climbing accident amid the same peaks attempts to scale his way to the very top. The film both revels in scenic Alpine wonder and pays homage to the fortitude and shared spirit of the Swiss people who live near the Eiger. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi

An eye-popping tribute to the European range that's heaved heavenward since bulging from the Earth eons ago during continental drift.

A giant screen to tell an intimate yet soaring story

With the majesty of the mountains coupled with an emotional impact as dense as tightly packed snow, The Alps is an awesome experience.

Even though the film was shot -- and is being shown -- in the 2-D format and not in IMAX's sometimes gimmicky 3-D one, The Alps is still not for those who have a fear of heights.

Wonderful cinematography, great music by Queen, pace suffers a bit near the end.

More than a travelogue, this chronicles a "real life story of strength, performance and passion," offering audiences alpine thrills without the element of danger.

A film whose story is framed by tragedy and the haunting human obsession that followed it. And that's what makes its stunning and highly vertiginous visuals all the more dramatic and relevant to the non-climber.
