North Face is kind of unknown gem that I really couldn’t recommend more. It’s based on a true story about a group of climbers in 1930’s Germany who attempt to be the first to summit the Eiger North Face, thought to be an almost impossible feat.
I saw North Face because I heard great things about it from a friend, who more specifically told me that the movie was so intense he almost vomited while he was leaving the theater. Before I saw the movie I had assumed that he was just exaggerating, but now I can say that I actually don’t think that’s too far from the truth. I’m sure you can imagine that a movie about a dangerous trip up a mountain in extreme weather would have its share of thrills, but this one really doesn’t ever let up.
P.S. This is available on Netflix Instant.
