No, not that void. Its a movie about two Brits solo climbing a 20,000' mountain and one guy breaks his leg on the way down. Its done like a documentary with commentary by the players.
I thought it was pretty intense in some parts. Got me doing a bit of soul searching.
Anybody seen it?

I saw it. I really dont get mountain climbing/mountain climbers. One false step and you're dead By some miracle those guys made it off the Murderhorn. Not my idea of a good time.

It was one of the most amazing survival stories ever told.

Read the book and wanted to adapt it for a feature. Found out it was already being done. One of the most amazing story's I have ever read about survival and never say die ever!

Just amazing to me that he could just keep going and going. A must read book. Where did you see the film? Love to see it.

Don't get it? All right, try this ; Fantastic scenery, outdoors, either sex can do it well, "hangin it out over the edge" (literally) is rewarded, you...and maybe you're partner... have your life in your own hands, you can rockclimb barefooted even if it's not recommended, and you can buy world-class equipment...most of which will last a lifetime...and do the other games, and you can compete and/or test only yourself if you want. Not for everybody, but try a rock-climbing wall sometime ; it sure aint easy ... it is fun. Stay safe

Definitely a good flick that has gone under the radar.
