Cast: Michael Gambon, John Harlin III

Director: Stephen Judson

Synopsis: In the air above Switzerland, on the sheer rock-and-ice wall known as the Eiger, an American climber is about to embark on the most perilous and meaningful ascent he has ever undertaken: an attempt to scale the legendary mountain that took his renowned father's life. Against a backdrop of overwhelming natural beauty, THE ALPS is a true-life story of extraordinary courage. It's the intensely personal journey of a man who has every reason not to climb the deadly Eiger North Face (the most difficult climb in Europe), yet climb it he must.
Featuring some of the most spectacular giant screen imagery yet seen, the film celebrates the unsurpassed beauty of the Alps and the indomitable spirit of the people who live there.
