Product Description

In the air above Switzerland, on the sheer rock-and-ice wall known as the Eiger, an American climber is about to embark on the most perilous and meaningful ascent he has ever undertaken: an attempt to scale the legendary mountain that took his renowned fathers life. Against a backdrop of overwhelming natural beauty, The Alps is a true-life story of extrodinary courage. It's the intensely personal journey of a man who has every reason not to climb the deadly Eiger North Face, yet climb it he must.

Featuring some of the most spectacular giantscreen imagery yet seen, the film celebrates the unsurpassed beauty of the Alps and the indomitable spirit of the people who live there.

Cool film
This film has really great shots of the Alps and shows views of it from all angles. It also have a little story that it follows about a man who wants to climb the North face of the Eiger after his father died on it when he was still a young boy. The film gives a little history and education section on the Alps which is interesting. All around, great film, I really7 enjoyed the shots of the spectacular Alps the most!

Saw it on the big screen
The mountain footage on the IMAX was amazing and the Queen sound track rocked. It is worth a watch
