Only three centuries ago, setting out to climb a mountain would have been considered close to lunacy. Mountains were places of peril, not beauty, an upper world to be shunned, not sought out. Why do mountains now hold us spellbound, drawing us into their dominion, often at the cost of our lives? From Tibet to Australia, Alaska to Norway armed with drones, Go-Pros and helicopters, director Jennifer Peedom has fashioned an astonishing symphony of mountaineers, ice climbers, free soloists, heliskiers, snowboarders, wingsuiters and parachuting mountain bikers. Willem Dafoe provides a narration sampled from British mountaineer Robert Macfarlane’s acclaimed memoir Mountains of the Mind, and a classical score from the Australian Chamber Orchestra accompanies this majestic cinematic experience.

  • Also boring

    awesome scenes are awesome for a few seconds. The lack of narration begets lack of purpose in the movie, so the point of why they are showing the scenery is lost. Requires long attention span.

    The music was annoying and overwhelmed the image. 22 minutes in I had learned nothing.I was impressed by some of the videography and in particular the free climbers who scale the stone unaided by any rope or hammer.
  • A Masterpiece

    This is a beautiful exploration of our world's Mountains. It's an artistic adventure, don't think you'll fiind much information. But it's rich with thrilling views and epic athletes and mountaineers. Narration: 5/5 Visuals: 5/5 Script: 5/5 Music: 5/5

    A very repetitive hour+ of classical music and panoramas of mountains. Could be enjoyable if that's your thing, but if you're looking for any sort of information, history, or narrative, look elsewhere.
  • beautiful and thought-provoking

  • Not much of a movie

    By pixelslave
    The photography was breathtaking, but it seemed like a lot of random footage cobbled together without a logical flow or narrative arc that would have made it into a compelling story--it was kind of like leafing through a National Geographic magazine. The music was mainly in a minor key and often discordant. It not only didn't seem to match the images, but it was also incredibly obtrusive, distracting and annoying. I turned the sound off about halfway through because I couldn't take any more of it and the narration didn't add much anyway.
  • Documentary?
