Today my brother, my father and I went to a movie about the Alps. The movie is about a man named John Harlin III climbing the most rugged part of the Alps; the north face of the Eiger. For him, it's not just difficult physically, but also emotionally because when he was nine, his father, John Harlin II decided to climb the Eiger and died in the attempt. John Harlin III doesn't believe that there's any climb worth dying for. If needed, he will take a helicopter back to base. His wife and daughter are anxious for John but are nevertheless supporting him emotionally. His wife said that her husband knows what he's got to do; complete the climb that his father started 30 years earlier. I think this movie was very good. It might have been better if it was not mainly about a man climbing the Eiger. It should have more about other parts of the alps. I would give this movie 4½ stars out of 5.
