Touching the Void
2003
****½
Director: Kevin Macdonald
Cast: Brendan Mackey, Nicholas Aaron, Ollie Ryall, Joe Simpson, Simon Yates

An absolute nailbiter of a docudrama about a pair of English mountain climbers who went through an extraordinary ordeal in their climb to Siula Grande in the Andes. This absorbing film intercuts dramatised footage with survivor interviews into an amazing survival story full of deep-felt human emotions from optimism, guilt, anger and hope to desperation.
