THANKS TO VENDETTA FILMS, YOU CAN WIN NORTH FACE ON DVD!

This competition's now closed.

North Face is a critically acclaimed German thriller about the dramatic first ascent of Europe's last remaining unclimbed peak, the notorious Eiger.

"A mountaineering adventure more tense, more edge-of-the-seat suspenseful, than Touching the Void? Almost incredibly, this German drama, based on a true story, is that film. Benno Fürmann and Florian Lukas play a pair of ace climbers who in July 1936, amid the rabble-rousing propaganda of the Nazis, attempt to scale the north face of the Eiger, otherwise known as the murder wall'...

Writer-director Philipp Stölzl evokes a keen sense of period in setting up the story, but once it switches to the mountain face, with avalanches and bitter weather looming ominously, the film becomes as taut as a holding rope. Anthony Quinn, The Independent
