5.0 out of 5 stars An Incredible Movie July 25 2010
By Wayne
The North Face refers to the Eiger, a mountain in the Switzerland Alps.The north face of this mountain is very hard to climb. Since 1935 64 climbers have died trying to scale this part of the mountain.
This is the true story of one of these attempts.In 1936 the Nazi's sent climbers to scale the mountain hoping that the first to climb the north face would be Germans.This is one of the most suspensful movies I have ever seen.The movie is very realistic and while watching this movie I wondered how they filmed it as the realism and great acting is amazing.Make sure your popcorn is made in advance as you will not want to miss one moment of this film.It is in German with subtitles.

First” you have got to see this” “North Face” is one stunning piece of realism movie that I’ve ever seen,
in a very long time, my eyes was so fixated to the T.V. screen to see how it’s outcome would end,
I wish I could see a lot more reviews of movies of this nature, especially the ones with subtitles,
it’s either those top 10 or top 50 reviewers are slow readers, or don’t think outside the box,
it’s like mundane mundane mundane, one after the other, how could you not see the depth and the beauty,
of a fine piece of film-making, with tense cinematic drama to it’s fullest, I’m going to forget everything German,
I know it’s hard to say, but for two hours, I am going to immerse myself in this spellbinding masterpiece of a movie,
and a love story like no other, risking her life out on that mountain for two of her friends, when all the odds
are against you, which was inspired by her presence of making these men did what the did, don’t know if it was guilt,
or the realization of the bad outcome, there wasn't one bad moment to this masterpiece, of moviemaking ever,
I remember one movie that I saw long ago, called “The Mountain” with “Spencer Tracy” and “Robert Wagner”
when the plane crashed on the mountain, can’t remember what the name of the mountain was,
they had to go see if anyone was alive, their was debate of why it was too dangerous to climb the mountain,
at that time, that was tense, now that I’ve seen this, this one takes precedence over that one, great movie,

5.0 out of 5 stars amazing piece of filmmaking Aug. 11 2011
By Brian Maitland TOP 500 REVIEWER
The star of this movie is the Eiger Mountain. Yes, the movie is about the first attempted ascent of the Eiger (Ogre in English) and focuses mainly on the two German mountaineers but the mountain is, as I said, truly the star.

The cinematography and the CGI is remarkably beautiful, awe-inspiring, scary and just plain jaw-droppingly unreal. On the DVD extras you get a great look at how the visual effects were done. There's no lengthy boring technical explanation by talking heads. They just show onscreen how layers and backgrounds are painted in as well as snow and wind. It's mindblowing technology and kudos to the visual effects co. Lugungtrug.

The acting also elevates (excuse the pun) what is a basic story--men climb mountain, mountain wins, men lose. The buildup to the climb shows us the lives of the two German mountaineers, Toni Kurz (Benno Furmann) and Andreas Hinterstoisser (Florian Lukas), in their small Bavarian village, Berchtesgarden, that is home to a Nazi mountain brigade (and of course Hitler's summer home) that the two are reluctantly a part of in 1936...until they quit the army and decide to "attack" the Eiger.

The other tangent is of newspaper reporters in Berlin who follow the story on the ground and actually on the mountain due to the photographer, Luise (Johanna Wokalek), and her relationship with the climbers as she grew up in the same village. The love story that develops works as Luise transforms herself over the course of the movie from a wide-eyed gopher at the Berlin newspaper offices to a talented photojournalist who sees clearly her future, the future of her nation and that of her mountaineering friends as all intertwined in the politics of the time. Yet the director never lets the politics overwhelm the story.

Back to the filming.
