FILM INDUSTRY FESTIVALS
EVEREST - Movie Review
film is the true events that happened on the morning of May 10,
1996. It tells the story of climbers from two expeditions start
their final ascent toward the summit of Mount Everest, the highest
point on Earth. With little warning, a violent storm strikes the
mountain, engulfing the adventurers in one of the fiercest blizzards
ever encountered by man. Challenged by the harshest conditions
imaginable, the teams must endure blistering winds and freezing
temperatures in an epic battle to survive against nearly impossible
This film is executed well and was well-received in 72nd Venice International Film Festival. However if you are a movie goers who expect to feel good with a nice happy ending probably this movie is not for you.
The acting of the casts was incredibly-good. You actually feels like you are in the mountain with them. Especially for Jason Clarke who acted as Rob Hall and for Jake Gyllenhaal as Scott Fischer who can makes the audience cries many times during the film.
The film shoots in Italy and Iceland and also Nepal. The cinematography is very catching to the eyes. Friends who have been to Everest feels the movie is well researched and real.
The idea of spending 65.000 US dollar just to challenge death is just not logical enough for some audience. But, sometimes the chooses in life are not made based on logical reasoning. (Anna-Rose, Katyana)
