In 2001, one of the worlds most accomplished climbers and adventurers, Jon Muir, began a 2,500 kilometre odyssey to cross Australia from the south to the north coast on foot. Often close to despair, he drew on his instinct for survival, his deep understanding of the land and his remarkable inner strength. —Shark
I saw this movie at the banff film festival and absolutely loved it. I think that this film will more be appreciated by the climbing and backpacking community, as its plot could be called, by some 'absurd'. The story of a man, who in his own words,( I got to see him!) "IS a simple man who walked his dog." hiking across Austrlia. Encountering, partially decomposing cows, dingoes, camel hoof-prints and many other simply unimaginable encounters! I would give it a 10! This is a movie about the human soul, and the tale of a man who overcame the physiological need of human companion ship, and other needs such as food, water.... I found it most intriguing that after this movie he lost 1/3 of his body weight, suffered from metal and physical exhaustion and malnutrition, yet went on to climb in the North Pole 4 months later. This man is an inspiration to us all!
