I would have to criticize the narrator as being a bit overdramatic in his tone at times, but in any case this is a fascinating documentary. I do wish it was a bit in depth though. I'd love to see more of the studies done on the glacier and what the results are actually showing. The analysis that is provided feels like its missing engaging details and the footage spends a certain amount of time dwelling on people getting from A to B. There is incredible documentation of their deep diving in frigid conditions at high altitude, its quite amazing that its possible at all.
