Probably the greatest of the Bergfilme. Fanck classic. If you're a cinephile and into silents, or action, or simply snow & mountaineering, then this is a must-see. No excuses: it's easy to obtain.* People put their lives on the line for films like this to be made. // Ashley Irwin's 1998 orch. score: brilliant. // Gustav Diessl, too. // As of 05 Sep. 2015, this had a mere 48 ratings on Mubi. Incredible.
what a fucking amazing movie, i guess you couldn't ask for more when you get pabst, franck and riefenstahl together. They capture some fantastic footage deep into the snow, love the ending scene where Riefenstahl smiles for the camera. 3 great directors in a single movie.
