Great Adventure
22 November 2005 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

This is a well made film. The story strikes you first. The struggle of the blind climber to the top of everest is a triumph of the human spirit. And though he cannot see, what we see is achingly beautiful. The cinematography is a spectacle, and the editing is spot on. Watch this film. It will make you want to achieve things in your own life. It will make you want to take the next air plane to the Himalayas and make your own trek. The world is a better place with men like Erik who overcome all to achieve their goals. And with a film like this, the achievement is so palpable you feel like you can reach out and touch it.
