Quite good, actually...
6 December 2009 | by iotravelSee all my reviews

A film about the life of climber Catherine Destivelle is a great excuse for some wonderful photography of the French Alps.

The film is divided into three parts, following Destivelle on her ascent of three vertiginous peaks. Some of the camera work is quite astonishing.

Destivelle is not alone on each mountain: each peak is tackled with companion, a different person from each stage of her life. These scenes are not too forced, and seem to have been unscripted.

I recommend this title for the photography, if nothing else. And at 80 minutes, it's quite short, which is probably about right for a documentary.
