Touching the Void, a drama documentary directed by Ken Macdonald, tells the story of two young men from the North of England, Joe Simpson and Simon Yates, both in their early twenties, who in 1985 set out to climb the 21 ,OOO-foot Siula Grande in the Peruvian Andes. It's a modest' Alpine-style" climb with no back-up team, no helicopters, and no equipment other than what they carry in their packs.
They make it to the top in three days, but on the way down (when apparently 80 per cent of accidents occur) they run into terrible weather and a treacherous ridge.
Simpson has a bad fall that drives a bone up through his shattered knee and Yates tries to lower him down the mountain, 150 feet at a time. But there comes a point when Simpson is hanging in mid-air, irretrievable, and probably dead. To save his own Iife, Yates cuts the rope and returns to base camp, a decision he will have to live with for the rest of his life. Simpson actually survives in a crevasse the size of St Paul's dome. Crippled and in terrible pain, he makes the journey back in four days, one of the great stories of survival.
This story has been on moviemakers' minds for some years. Then, in 2003, Macdonald had the brilliant idea of shooting the movie using actors to play Simpson and Yates, and to have the real Simpson and Yates talking both to camera and over the action, as a form of commentary. The actors hardly say a word.
The film was shot entirely on location in Peru and in the Alps with some very evocative music, and we never see the men in their domestic contexts.
We experience the effort, the exhaustion, the pain, and the triumph of the climbers - and it is a breathtakingly beautiful film as we watch these small figures crossing glaciers and climbing rock faces in the majestic mountains. Is there 'some evil force' in the mountains that's out to get you, Simpson wonders? It is also a film about taking control of your life and subjecting yourself to extreme challenges that involve complex practical and moral choices.
1.The film, Touching The Void, is based on a true story. __________
2. The climbers experienced serious difficulties on their way up the mountain. _________
