Such a great move! A truly exhilarating ride.
Breath-taking documentary focusing on the annual Hahnenkamm ski race in the Austrian town of Kitzbühel and its iconic downhill course the Streif. The film follows international skiers Aksel Lund Svindal, Max Franz, Hannes Reichelt, Erik Guay and Yuri Danilochkin over the course of a year as they prepare for the 2014 edition of the race, its 75th anniversary.
Very well made and very interesting. Recommend!
Really fascinating, great archive footage and nail biting action. Made me want to ride the slope myself !
One of the best sports movies in years. Not a die-hard ski movie fan, but this gripped me from the start. Super high production quality, with great action but also a strong story line. Highly recommended.
XXX meets Cliffhanger! An incredible journey from start to finish, this film will take your breath away!
Celebrates everything you love about skiing
Growing up with an Austrian dad, watching the Hanenkammrennen every year as "our world cup", I can definately relate with the hype around The Streif. This documentary is amazing in capturing the emotions and prestige that come with the race. Fast pace with loads of action, but also pointing out the slow and thoughtful aspects, they did a great job to narrate the story of The Streif. Five Stars.
