Makoto Fukamachi is a Japanese cameraman. On a backstreet of Nepal, he finds an old camera that might possibly solve the mystery of whether George Mallory became the first person to successfully climb Mount Everest on June 8, 1924 or not.
Pursuing the old camera's past, Makoto Fukamachi meets legendary alpinist Joji Habu, who is isolated from other people because of his reckless and thoughtless personality. Add Synopsis In Portuguese
Cast & Credits
The whole idea behind the plot is somewhat fictional . The way the story is tell is quite similar to Eien no Zero and that makes it more interesting to watch. Both leading characters, Fukamachi (Okada) and Habu (Abe) are strong and passionate personalities and portrayed perfectly. Since it's about Everest, some traditional elements were found in the music, making it different but did not give me significant liking to it.
Overall, it is a good movie and provides a glimpse towards the passion and ambitions of mountaineers.
