    Read the book watched the film twice awe inspiring...
  • Not as good as the book

    By Tojotoon
    I read the book before seeing the documentary and have to say the book evokes much more emotion than the documentary. If you're a reader get the book first. If not, you'll thoroughly enjoy watching this amazing story of human endurance which will certainly leave you wondering...would you have cut the rope!
  • Very moving!

    This is such a brave story these guys told. What they went through and survived. An absolutely brilliant film/documentry.
