It is based on Simpson's Somatic Responses - Touching The Void of the same name. The Guardian described it as "the most successful documentary in British cinema history".
Though they reach the summit, a powerful storm develops and Simpson suffers a badly broken leg in a fall during the descent. The pair attempt a self-rescue, deciding to lower Simpson with ropes down the steep and snowy slope while an enormous storm rages on. Yates cannot see where he is lowering Simpson, and inadvertently lowers him over the edge of a large cliff, leaving him suspended by the rope in mid-air.
Yates arrests his fall, but cannot see the Кого Ты Хотел Удивить - Машина Времени - Маленький Принц his partner is in, nor hear him over Somatic Responses - Touching The Void howling wind. Unable to pull Simpson back over the cliff and gradually losing traction in the loose snow, Yates realizes after about an hour that there is little chance of recovery from this situation for either of them and he decides to cut the rope connecting him with Simpson.
Yates descends after surviving a subzero and stormy night on the mountain but cannot find his partner. He assumes Simpson is dead and returns to the base camp alone, where he stays to recover. Simpson, however, has actually survived the fall and is now trapped in a large crevasse. He manages to lower himself further into the dark abyss and finds an exit leading to the base of the mountain.
He then spends days crawling back to base camp across glaciers and rocks, despite his broken leg, frostbite, and severe dehydration. Exhausted and near delirium, Simpson reaches camp only a few hours before Yates intends to leave and return to civilization.
Simpson and Yates doubled as their younger selves for long-distance shots of the snow-fluted couloirs of Siula Grande. When they collaborated on the film inSimpson and Yates had not seen one another for 10 years. During the making of the film, the director and producers invited Yates and Simpson to return to Siula Grande in for the first time since the events of Simpson, despite finding the return emotionally difficult and experiencing post-traumatic stress syndrome on his return, eventually said that he was happy with the film and its portrayal of the events.
Yates, on the other hand, reported having no emotional response to returning to Siula Grande, and decided to have nothing to do with the film once he had returned from the mountain. According to the film's end Somatic Responses - Touching The Void , Yates received a great deal of criticism from the mountaineering community for cutting the rope on his partner during the descent after the climbers returned to Britain and the story of what happened emerged.
In reality, Simpson fully accepted that Yates did the right thing by cutting the rope, and risked his own life to help save Simpson's life, and has always defended him When I Fall In Love - The Lettermen - A Song For Young Love that matter.
Peter Knegt at Indiewire called it one of the "10 incredible documentaries that weren't nominated for an Oscar". Original music for the film was scored by Alex Heffes.
The climbers reach the summit to the climax of Thomas Tallis 's Spem in alium. During one of Simpson's many deliriums, he experiences a very strong reminiscence of a Boney M song he hated thoroughly, " Brown Girl in the Ring "; at one point thinking "Bloody hell, I'm going to die to Boney M".
