The North Face — Brilliant!

Wow… anybody who hasn’t seen this should run out *immediately* to buy it, and then lock themselves into a room at home, banish everybody else, turn the heating up and the lights off and settle back to experience it.

Inevitably there’s a degree of poetic licence involved, but the photography is simply stunning–in a completely different league to that of the film version of Touching the Void, IMO (I found that film quite disappointing, after the book)–and the sense of mounting tension created by the film makers is something that I don’t remember ever experiencing before in front of a television screen, or at the cinema.

10/10! Many thanks indeed to Mary and HMP3 for giving me the DVD ♥
