To the Limit Photos

Movie Info

Filmmaker Pepe Danquart gives us a portrait of Alexander and Thomas Huber, two obsessive mountain climbers. Not content with climbing steep, treacherous mountainsides in a careful way, the brothers strive to break speed records. As they race recklessly up the rocky cliffs, their sibling rivalry emerges. The suicidal daring does not stop with the Hubers, however, as Danquart films the brothers pursuing their extreme hobby as he too dangles from the frightening heights.

  • Director Pepe Danquart and his cinematographers give us lots of splendid mountainscapes, but more importantly, they put the cameras right there with the climbers; we see, up close, every strained muscle and grimace.

  • There could be more, but what is here is beautifully gripping.

  • In To the Limit, Thomas and Alexander Huber run up rocks the way some of us run up credit cards -- rapidly, fearlessly and with little regard for consequences.

  • Many American sports documentaries tend to fall into a predictable inspirational rut, no matter how stunning the footage. Pepe Danquart's To the Limit from Germany looks great, but it's an altogether different animal.

  • So nerve-racking is its death-defying rock climbing footage that To the Limit could have easily been renamed Vertigo without giving the master of suspense any postmortem unease.

Audience Reviews for To the Limit

  • Oct 07, 2008
    This documentary follows two Bavarian brothers on their climbing trips around the world and particularly their biggest challenge: to climb a peak in Yosemite Park that usually takes 5 days in 2 and a half hours. The landscape shots are stunningly beautiful, the soundtrack nice, the climbing scenes dizzying and spectacular. Their final attempt to tackle the speed climb record is exciting and exhausting to watch. Sadly, the middle part of the film is somewhat slow with too much personal talking going on. That said, the cinematography is so fantastic that many scenes of this will probably be hard to forget. Worth checking out.
