When the one who climbed 14 peaks of more than 8000m in 7 months as well as the K2 in winter meets the one who changed the the cinematographic production codes, we must expect a very high calibre. The teaser of 14 peaks: nothing is impossible seems to confirm this premonition. In 1mn55, Netflix distills a few moments of this film tracing the life and career of Nirmal “Nims” Purja, from his Nepalese childhood to the 14 x 800 through his passage in the special forces of his majesty.
Whether you like or not the Hollywood music that makes you jump, the Rambo style raucous voice-overs or the grandiloquent camera effects, no one should remain indifferent to this film narrating one of the most incredible episodes in the history of Himalayan climbing, whether in terms of physical, entrepreneurial (an 8000 is expensive, so 14 in 7 months…) or symbolic (a Nepalese beats the Westerners to the punch) performance.
So let’s meet on November 29th 2021 on Netflix to discover this movie version of the life of the great Nirmal Purja!
