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.

My 389th Review: Exceptional documentary about the forgotten first climb of Everest
20 March 2011 | by (the big screen) – See all my reviews

I find it hard to agree with one of the other reviewers here who was left unmoved and disconnected by this brilliant attempt to capture the first attempt by the West to conquer Everest.

The level of research, the history connection through the letters, the original film that was shot in the 1920s, the memories of relatives, and the extensive recreation by two professional climbers, all coupled with simply stunning photography, and voice-overs by Liam Nilson and a cast of the best of British voice-over really makes for an exceptional and honestly involving climbing documentary.

For anyone interested in adventure, exploration, or climbing you could do far far worse. National Geographic have put the highest production values on this, and for my buck, it more than works.
