Description: Based on a true story, NORTH FACE is a gripping adventure drama about a competition to climb the most dangerous rock face in the Alps. In July of 1936 - less than a year after the most recent and fatal attempt, two top German mountaineers, Toni Kurz (BENNO FURMANN) and Andi Hinterstoisser (FLORIAN LUKAS), take up the challenge to become the first to scale the infamous rock face, the so-called Murder Wall. While preparing themselves at the foot of the mountain, Toni and Andi unexpectedly run into Luise (JOHANNA WOKALEK), the early love of Toni. Now a journalist, she has come with her boss Arau (ULRICH TUKUR), a loyal Nazi, to report about the first ascent. International press and assorted well-heeled climbing fans will turn the expedition into a spectator sport and follow their progress on binoculars from the luxury of the Swiss resort of Grindelwald at the foot of the Eiger. In the dark of predawn, Toni and Andi begin their ascent, closely followed by the rival Austrian team of Willy Angerer (SIMON SCHWARZ) and Edi Rainer (GEORG FRIEDRICH). All goes well at first as both rope teams make good headway. At a key point Toni executes a daring traverse-ever since known as the Hinterstoisser Traverse, but soon the climbers lose their advantage over the mountain and the race against time and the forces of nature begins.
