  • Summary: Thomas and Alexander Huber, risk takers in the extreme, rank as two of the best mountain climbers of our time. Now the two Huber brothers have set out to break the record in speed climbing at the wall of all walls, the 1,000 foot vertical “Nose” of El Capitan in Yosemite Valley, California.Thomas and Alexander Huber, risk takers in the extreme, rank as two of the best mountain climbers of our time. Now the two Huber brothers have set out to break the record in speed climbing at the wall of all walls, the 1,000 foot vertical “Nose” of El Capitan in Yosemite Valley, California. Featuring breathtaking footage of the mountains of Patagonia and Yosemite National Park, Pepe Danquart follows the Huber brothers to locations never before reached by a film crew. To the Limit is a portrait of two competitive brothers who go to the very edge of the possible, physically and psychologically. These brothers, who ordinarily live very different and separate lives, become like twins when they climb together, as they have since childhood, each driven to search for his own limits. To the Limit completes a trilogy of sports films by Pepe Danquart, the other films being Home Match and Hell On Wheels. (First Run Features) Collapse

    To The Limit is full of a lot of talk about "risk" and "dreams" and "making the impossible possible," and Danquart's stabs at making this an inspirational tale can be a little exhausting.
  2. 80
    A visually breathtaking essay about daredevils hooked on the thrill of speed rock-climbing.
  3. We're compelled to admire these athletes because, despite their obvious skill, they are in constant danger.
  4. 75
    Pepe Danquart's To the Limit from Germany looks great, but it's an altogether different animal.
  5. 70
    Daring enough to appeal to more than just the usual extreme-sports junkies.
  6. This disorienting, dippy documentary makes one thing abundantly clear: for the Hubers, the toughest climb may be into their own heads.
