    Les naufragés du Mont Blanc

    Denis Ducroz (2002)

    December 1956. Two mountaineers try what could be their greatest climb: the Brenva in winter. A sudden weather change and their lack of experience trap them at 4000 metres. In Chamonix, a series of absurdities is responsible for the lack of a quick rescue, which forces the climbers to stay on the mountain for ten days. A touching story that shook France and that is remembered here by some of its protagonists.

    La grande crevasse

    La grande crevasse

    Gérard Herzog (1966)

    Adaptation for the television of the novel by Roger Frison-Roche 'La grande crevasse'. The story is in the same context as 'Premier de cordee' but is not centered on the same characters. It tells the love story of Zian, a mountain guide, and Brigitte, a Parisian bourgeois. Their love is thwarted by the cultural difference between the two as well as by the cold welcome that is reserved for Brigitte, the stranger in this mountain environment. In the end, Brigitte understands that she is really in love with Zian who dies after a fall in a crevasse, during a hunting trip in the mountains.
