This film by director Baltasar Kormakur, both disaster film and psychological thriller tells the tragic death of eight climbers on 10 and 11 May 1996 in a storm in the Himalayas.

The film is particularly interested in two very experienced guides, the New Zealander Rob Hall, played on screen by Australian actor Jason Clarke and American Scott Fischer, played by Jake Gyllenhaal, who perish every two .

In one of the most dramatic scenes, Rob Hall manages to reach by satellite phone his pregnant wife, played by Keira Knightley, before dying.

The film, a British production of a cost of about $ 65 million, according to press, was partly shot in the Dolomites in Italy, Iceland, director native country and at the base camp of Everest Nepal.

While the tragedy of 1996 has since been overshadowed by other tragedies, it marks the beginning of the first questions about the sometimes underestimated risks of mountaineering, when it begins to popularize. The two days of the tragedy, as many as 34 climbers tried to reach the roof of the world.

The largest distribution networks in the United States refused to broadcast the lack of exclusive first in theaters, as is the case for most of the films produced for the big screen.

The film industry does not prepare in less that this mode of distribution becomes the norm for many films in the very near future.
