North Face: The Eiger Beckons

This movie was intense, to say the least (kind of like restless leg syndrome but all over the body).  It was pretty gnarly.

It's based on a true story about two German Nazi climbers in 1936 that want to be the first to conquer the north face of Eiger - a monster of a mountain in the Swiss Alps.  The scenery is breathtaking and the story is heartfelt.  If you don't want to spoil any surprises only watch the first 45 seconds of the trailer below.
