Bearing the expectations of a nation and their Fuhrer, two climbers set out to be the first to conquer the "last great problem of the Alps". But soon their ascent becomes a race for survival, threatened by injury and storms of unimaginable fury. Before long, their quest becomes a pusle-pounding race against both time and the awesome forces of nature. Shot through with scenes of gut-wrenching peril rivaling those of Touching The Void, North Face is a powerful, breathtaking tale of human endurance on a terrifying landscape
towering over 1,800m, the North Face has claimed over 60 lives and earned itself the grimly appropriate nickname: "the murder wall".

If you don't know the real story or anything about climbing and would be happy with a Titanic-like love story fabricated into what, without such nonsense be an incredibly exciting real life drama, this may be for you. Knowing the real events of what happened I was really looking forward to this film, I found it a very dissapointing and annoying experience. My advice-but a book and read the truth.

great movie - English Sub not possible to hide

It's a really excellent movie!
I made the mistake to watch the movie before going to bed - I could sleep for hours!
Unfortunatly the menu of the BR is really primitive and it is not possible to hide the Engish subtitles.
It's disturbing for those who understand German.
