Imagine.
9 September 2018 | by ayhansalamciSee all my reviews

I finally got an opportunity to watch Nanga Parbat, which was dedicated to the Messner brothers. You do not witness exciting movie scenes in the first half hour, but you are definitely not bored. Then the tempo drops considerably and the film becomes too far from realism. I can say that I find the performances of the players inadequate and it is impossible to establish an emotional connection. The only good thing was the childhood scenes of the Messner brothers. This movie could have been better. Unfortunately I had to close the movie before it was finished.
