The documentary genre is so flooded with personal memoirs and private adventures these days, it's hard to see a film like this without already being numbed by Discovery Channel and the like.
But this film will creep into your soul, whether you are an outdoorsman or not. I saw this when I drifted into Telluride on a trip home from California. I decided to view it during a free afternoon at the Mountain Film Festival, and it hasn't left me since. What an amazing story! I'm looking for it on DVD, but the film seems to have disappeared. I do hope there are plans for a U.S./Netflix release. I know American audiences would love it.
