    A documentary re-enactment of an event in February 1945, when men from a Mountain Rescue Team- the Blue Cross of the title was their badge- in the Tatra Mountains in Poland, summoned by a Slovak doctor, crossed the mountains to rescue three badly wounded men, their nurse and a guard from an isolated hut near a German outpost. The characters were played by some of the original participants and amateur actors. It's a well-put together short film; the events almost entirely described by an omniscient commentator with a mixture of location and well-made re-enactment. It's only the absence of vapour from the men's mouths that shows which is the latter. There are some extraordinary shots though, with Munk's characteristic concentration on faces- an amputation without anaesthetics depicted by close ups of the patient's, the surgeon's and the watchers' faces and a tuneless humming. There are some wonderful action shots as well- an avalanche, the journey across snow fields, a pursuing German ski patrol sweeping across white snow- but more than anything it is the way Munk looks at the middle-aged and elderly faces of the rescue team- gap-toothed, wrinkled, moustachioed, resolutely civilian in a war- and the reminder that this was entered- like every other rescue- in the book at their base. It's noteworthy that Munck only depicts heroism unequivocally when as here it involves saving life not taking it.

    On March 1, 2004, Patrick Bérhault and Philippe Magnin set out to climb all 82 summits above 4000 metres in the Alps. Both climbers are well-known for their solid experience and purist approach to climbing, so the emphasis for this large-scale project is on making the most of the pleasures of mountaineering. They brave changing weather and strong emotions as they proceed on their long journey into the unknown. On April 28, after almost two months of climbing, they are making their way along Nadelgrat, an interminable ridge leading up to their 67th summit, when destiny steps in... .
