Reviews in German: "Sowohl an der historischen Stoffwahl als auch an der Gestaltung der Figuren
merkt man, dass sich Fanck in seinem letzten Bergfilm an den Filmen seines
Schülers Luis Trenker zu orientieren versucht, ohne jedoch dessen
dramaturgisches Talent zu besitzen. In der Naturdarstellung hat Fanck noch
nachgelegt: Als der schneeblinde Balmat zu halluzinieren beginnt, erscheinen
die Berge und Witterungen geradezu alptraumhaft verzerrt und gespenstisch
verformt. Es scheint, als ob Fanck den Aberglauben und Naturbegriff jener
Epoche mit den Mitteln des Kinos zu rekonstruieren versuchte." (cr,
