Movie Info

In the thin air above Switzerland, on the sheer rock-and-ice wall known as the Eiger, an American climber is about to embark on the most perilous and meaningful ascent he has ever undertaken: an attempt to scale the legendary mountain that took his renowned father's life. The film also celebrates the unsurpassed beauty of the Alps and the indomitable spirit of the people who live there. Viewers will get an unprecedented view complete with a ride on the high-altitude Glacier Express train, stops in enchanting mountain villages, a bungee jump off Verzasca Dam and the rare chance to experience a triumphant ascent of the feared and revered Eiger North Face.

Critic Reviews for The Alps

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

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.

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