Touching the Void [*****] 2004

It’s human nature to underestimate the danger we face in our day to day
lives and how fragile our hold on life is, until it’s challenged. We had never
heard of the saga of Joe Simpson and Simon Yates, who in 1985 aspired to be the
first to reach the summit of this “ridge of some difficulty“, the 21,000
ft Siula Grande in the Peruvian Andes. Little did they know how deep they would
have to go to survive.

Touching the void is a powerful and
emotional documentary. This movie is a solid recommendation. It was so good we
bought the book.
