Review by Paul Remde
I love this film. The scenery and cinematography are awesome. The views of clouds flowing around mountain peaks are spectacular. I like how he shows water flowing over a rock and compares it with the wind and clouds flowing over and around the mountain peaks. The effect is very well done. The flight is truly an amazing one and you get to relive it as he describes his thought process as the flight unfolds. The film also includes a great interview with Klaus about the flight and future flights. He talks about many topics including how sleep deprivation is a major factor in flights like this because late night weather analysis and early morning preparations don't leave much time for sleep before the flight. At the end are more breathtaking views of volcanic craters, impressive lenticular clouds, etc. It is a beautiful, inspirational and motivational film. Why does he call it "Gliding in the 5th Dimension"?... You'll have to watch the film to find out.
