Were George Mallory and Andrew Irvine the first men to scale Mount Everest in 1924? That innocent question, challenging recorded mountaineering history, launches a young Japanese photo-journalist on his own philosophical path of discovery in Patrick Imbert’s elegantly animated adaptation of Jiro Taniguchi’s and Baku Yumemakura’s manga masterpiece. Meticulous graphics and pitch-perfect sound design convey both the thrill of the quest and the film’s heightened sense of impending danger at each vertiginous step. The Summit of the Gods is ultimately a suspenseful, profound discourse on Man’s unfathomable need to surpass nature and the catharsis inherent in climbing walls of stone and ice.
