Audience Reviews for The Dark Glow of the Mountains

Herzog always picks fascinating characters for his documentaries but in this case the main character is majorly flawed. He is a lost soul who can't keep still and doesn't really understand himself why he risks life and limb to climb mountains. He doesn't even seem to enjoy it much! Good old Herzog though, telling it how it is. When the climber reveals that on his last expedition with his brother, tragedy struck and he came down alone. "How did you explain that to your mother?" Werner asks. Brutal but a good question and that's what makes Herzog's documentaries so compelling. The scenery is amazing too. I did miss Herzog's voice though as the version I've seen has a cheesy American voice over that can't match Herzog's monotone yet smooth sounding voice. Christ, sounds like I'm in love with the man, I'm certainly in love with his films though! ;o)
