Quotes

[first lines]
Narrator: Mount Everest. 29,000 feet. The highest point on earth. Captivating and deadly. In the 1920s, to conquer this mountain was the greatest challenge remaining in the golden age of adventure. Everest was the edge of heaven, where many believed no human could survive. But not George Mallory.

Wildest - and coldest dream
4 December 2014 | by (Cheung Chau) – See all my reviews

Modern documentary retracing George Mallory's 1924 Mt Everest attempt, which ended in his and his companion's disappearance. His frozen body, with compound fracture, was found in 1999.

1924 was near the end of the glory years of the old explorers. Both poles, darkest Africa, perfumed Asia, tropical South America, all have been trekked. Only that peak remained to be claimed.

Two modern climbers retraced Mallory's path, wearing layered clothing, fur hats, hobnail boots, goggles.

The ladder, placed near the top in the 70s (and used since by countless handicapped, overweight, blind wannabee mountaineers) was removed.

Film swings back and forth between Mallory, his letters, the 20s and the difficulties the modern duo encounter.

Cold is ever present, and caused one viewer in the room to move closer to the fire.
