      North Wall - the tangle of morality and life

      "Toni once told me—when you're at the bottom, at the bottom of a cliff, you look up and ask yourself: How can people get up? Why would people want to do that? But hours later, at the top, Look down, you forget everything, only the one you promised to come back..."


      In 1936, Nazi Germany launched a campaign to challenge the last unclimbed peak in the Alps before the Olympics, European mountaineer They were all eager to focus on the north wall of Eger, known as the "Wall of...

      The north wall was read intermittently. The style of German cinema is very depressing. After China became stronger, they arrested all the Germans and put them in a small dark room, and let them study things except to eat and drink, and they were not allowed to do anything else.
           The kb movies in Japanese movies that eat people with flesh and blood have never felt anything, but this movie is completely depressing. I just watched the part challenging Chogori in "Three Cups of Tea" in the...

      real man!

      Downloaded the movie from verycd, 2 files. Clarity is a bit poor. I like the character of the German Germain nation very much. Although I don’t know much about history, they all started from World War 1 to World War 2. The great feat of fighting on the east and west fronts is unmatched so far, and I am always in awe.

      Having seen this movie, it is obviously more vivid in my memory than "Vertical Limit". Because in the process, people's ideals, choices, judgments, struggles, and...

      thought of by [North Wall]

      I have always held the expectation of 5 points and waited for the release of this mountaineering documentary as if expanding my knowledge. The attendance rate of 30% or 40% also confirmed my hypothesis. As a result, except for some slightly professional mountaineering rules, the rest of the two hours have nothing to do with mountaineering-this extreme sport itself that seems to be rarely touched on weekdays.


          From the perspective of the script, there is nothing new; and...

      our position

      After watching the German mountaineering film "Nordward" (North Peak, Cruel Ice and Snow), I seemed to be shaken out of the daily mundane life for a moment, ice and snow, iron and blood, 2000-3000 meters above sea level, human nature under the snowstorm. The life point smashed by the ice axe, the survival line wedged in by the rock nails, a slip and return to the deep stream - the eternal sleep of the warriors.

          How naive it was when playing Sword III, Fit Fit, fell to the death of...

      In order to save people, I gave up climbing to the top, cut the ropes for my companions, and braved the wind and snow for a woman's eyes to ask for help for her lover. It is a pity that no matter how powerful or beautiful human nature is, it cannot match the cruelty and determination of...

      Watching such a movie requires enough courage and a strong heart. Watching a movie has not brought me such a shocking experience for a long time. When I recall the last time a certain string in my brain was awakened by electricity, I have forgotten it. We almost collapsed even looking up at those brave people, not only out of shock, but also fear. This kind of fear is inexplicable, but it is extremely...

    Movie plot

    The waves slapped the coast, and a surviving unit of the Red Army retreated from the Caspian coast towards the Karakum Desert. From the encirclement of death, 23 soldiers and political commissar Yevxiukov broke through. Among them was a female warrior-Marutka. She was a sharpshooter with no bullets. There were already 40 white soldiers in her death book. One night, when they set up a bonfire, they were lying down in the camp, when they...

    Movie quotes

    • [first lines]

      [in German, quoting English subtitles]

      Luise Fellner: [voiceover] When you're at the bottom - Toni once told me - at the foot of the wall, and you look up, you ask yourself: How can anyone climb that? Why would anyone even want to? But hours later when you're at the top looking down, you've forgotten everything. Except the one person you promised you would come back to.

    • [last lines]

      [in German, quoting English subtitles]

      Luise Fellner: [voiceover] All I know is that death spared me, and that Toni went away forever that day. One has lived if one has loved. There are times when I find this infinitely hard to believe. Most days I feel that I am alive. And that love is the reason for that.
