Storyline

A meeting of two world famous climbers, one an experienced mountaineer the other a sport climber, and a journalist (Ivan) results in a bet on which of the two is the best climber. Roger (the mountaineering expert) states that Martin (the sport climber) wouldn't survive a day on a 'real' climbing expedition, although he is considered to be the world's best sport climber (having just won an indoor 'world championship,' an event depicted in the opening scene). They plan to climb 'Cerro Torre,' in the Patagonia region of South America, near the Argentinian/Chilean border, one of the world's most difficult mountains, especially considering the extreme weather conditions common to the area. The rivalry among the two men results eventually in the death of their common friend and the stealing of Roger's girlfriend (Katrina) by Martin. In the end the rivalry results in a 'climb against time' in which Martin and Roger each attempt different routes up the mountain in a race to the summit. But ...

Trivia

This film had it's world premiere at the Telluride Film Festival in 1991, with Werner Herzog in attendance. He explained, during his introduction to the film, that they hadn't had time yet to add subtitles for the couple of scenes with Spanish dialog. During these scenes, Herzog himself, shouted out from the theater audience, the English translation of the lines spoken in Spanish. See more »

Goofs

Quotes

Fingerless: The old..."finger snatcher". I'll tell you you one thing. No one ever never will get to the top. I'll tell you why. Because Cerro Torre is not a mountain. It's a scream of stone. Yeah.

A below par flick with some good climbing scenes.
19 May 2001 | by (Orange County, CA USA) – See all my reviews

"Scream of Stone" tells of a happenstance competition between a mountain climber and a rock climber to see who is first to the top of a foreboding 3000 ft needle of rock and ice in Patagonia, South America. As with most Herzog flicks, the film is rough hewn and one can imagine the filming crew is having more of an adventure than the characters. Plodding, dull at times, and subpar on most counts the film does feature some good climbing scenes. Pass on this one unless you're into climbing.
