Cerro Torre: Schrei aus Stein (1991)

Two famous competitive climbers make a bet on who can climb Cerro Torre, one of the most dangerous mountains in Argentina and the world, first.

Lacklustre performances and clunky dialogue mar a good story with great landscape photography; the "Herzog touch" can be found only in occasional moments.

Halliwell*: "Spectacular photography compensates for a muddled narrative about obsessive people."
