A strange and beguiling romance that launched the career of Leni
Riefenstahl, The Holy Mountainis the greatest of Arnold Fanck's
legendary "mountain films," in which dramatic intrigues are played
out against the breathtaking backdrop of the German Alps.
Enthralled by the scenic majesty and heaving power of nature, an
alluring dancer (Riefenstahl) seeks the man of her dreams in a
small mountain village. There she encounters a reclusive climber (
Louis Trenker) and a young skier ( Ernst Petersen), who are each
pursuing their own elusive ideals amid the intoxicating beauty and
treacherous dangers of the Alps.Riefenstahl, who would later direct
the controversial Triumph of the Willand Olympia, no doubt acquired
her fascination with the Ubermensch while working on this lofty
mortality tale, and developed an eye for the striking compositions
for which she would later become famous.
