Each viewing of the incredibly impressive "Nordwand" genuinely brings forth new discoveries. The cinematography is outstanding and the production design is overall pretty immaculate. The blustering snow atop the Eiger is contrasted with the warm glow of a fireplace indoors at the base hotel, and this works marvellously well. Although unbearably stressful at times, this film is a beautiful piece of historic fiction.
Finally sat down and watched this after having wanted to for a couple years now. Completely gut-wrenching and well worth the wait. Feels a little long in parts but it’s not often a movie gets much emotion out of me and this got a lot at one point, so it makes up for it in strides. Recommended if you want to get chilly.
