Extraoidinary film about the heart of extreme skiing
I just saw this film at the Tribecca Film Festival. It is a really, really good film that has some mind-boggling skiing but more importantly explores what goes on in the minds of the extreme skiers. Being a skier and an ice climber myself I can attest that the film captures very well the state of mind, the motivation, the excitement, the addiction, the "chemical imbalance" that leads perfectly normal people to live this kind of life. It is a different world and this film lets you see that world from the inside. It is a great film, it is a feast for your eyes but it has depth and it is honest and intelligent. Go see it.
