Conclusion: If you don't know the real story or anything about climbing and would be happy with a Titanic-like love story fabricated into what, without such nonsense be an incredibly exciting real life drama, this may be for you.
Summary: A superbly filmed drama which has climbing scenes far more gripping than the actual route on the Eiger itself, albeit well done and exciting. However,the movie misleads in so many ways that climbers cannot take it seriously if they are at all aware of the actual events of 1936.
