NORTH FACE is a gripping German film about an attempted climb of the most dangerous face in the Alps. If you enjoyed INTO THIN AIR, or EVEREST, you will find this film excellent. The script is tight, the acting is good, and the sound design es excellent. The music is a little cliched, but I'll forgive that since the film worked as a whole. This movie is what 127 HOURS wishes it could have been.
