The Alps Photos

Movie Info

This documentary follows mountain climber John Harlin III as he attempts to scale the north face of the Eiger in the Swiss Alps, one of the most dangerous climbs in the world. Harlin feels compelled to complete the journey because his father died making the same trip. As Harlin plots his trip, he tries to instill in his daughter the same sense of awe towards nature that his father gave him. Once Harlin begins to climb, his family watches his ascent from a distance through a telescope.

Critic Reviews for The Alps

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (1) | Fresh (8)

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

    October 5, 2007 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…
  • By focusing on one man, [the flimmakers have] made The Alps a very personal experience. Because of that, the audience can project a personality for the mountain as well, and it's a menacing one.

  • 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.

    June 5, 2008 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • Wonderful cinematography, great music by Queen, pace suffers a bit near the end.
