Messner (2012)

Germany 108m, Colour
Director: Andreas Nickel; Cast: Florian Riegler, Martin Riegler, Hubert Niederwolfsgruber, Brunhilde Schatzer, Reinhold Messner, Helmut Messner, Hubert Messner, Hans-Jörg Messner

Messner is a dramatized biography that is augmented with interviews and documentary footage of famed mountaineer Reinhold Messner. Beginning with his childhood, Messner’s auspicious climbing career is contextualized within his family relationships – the most significant of which was his connection to his brother Günther who was killed in 1970 on Nanga Parbat. A true original in the climbing world, Messner’s no-holds-barred approach to climbing and to life in general shines through in this highly personal documentary (Klaus Ming January 2019).
