    Journey for three

    Michael Forlong (1950)

    The adventures of three British immigrants -two girls and a man- to New Zealand. The girls settle down quite soon, one as a nurse, the other as a factory worker; the man, an engineer, finds himself out of his element, ill at ease, disliking his companions, and has almost determined to leave when he goes out on a relief party up the mountains to rescue a climber who has broken his leg at the head of a glacier. The rigors of the climb solve his personal problems: he decides he likes New Zealanders after all, in spite of their differences to Britons... A film promoted by the Immigration Department of New Zealand to attract immigrants.

    L'ascension

    Ludovic Bernard (2017)

    A young man from the suburbs with no mountaineering experience decides to climb Mt Everest to show a woman he'd do anything for her. Though technically based on the true story of Nadir Dendoune, this is only in a very loose sense. Indeed, the main character's name, age, ethnicity, relations and entire motivation for wanting to climb to the top of Mount Everest were changed for the film. In fact, writer/director Ludovic Bernard never read the book which the film purports to adapt.
