Set in the closest place to the havens where it is still possible t ohave one’s feet on the ground, naturally Everest is a grand spectacle, framing fragile human lives against the elevating scale of the Himalayan peaks.

Even more than the stunning natural vistas, it’s this air of seriousness that dwarves the personalities onscreen… The script, by William Nicholson and Simon Beaufoy, lets us know a little bit about each speaking character’s past, yet no one narrative dominates. The movie represents an act of teamwork, much like the ascent itself.

[It’s] handsome, not too cheesy, well-mounted – but doesn’t really nail the emotional side, despite its efforts… Everest the film is Discovery Channel stuff, though fairly palatable; Everest the place is a whole other matter.
