This isn't the type of movie I would normally watch, but I made an exception as it featured rock climbing and the Scottish Highlands. I'm glad I did; "A Lonely Place to Die" is a cracking wee movie. The climbing scenes are some of the most realistic to appear in a mainstream film, with the actors looking like they actually know what they're doing. The drink-fuelled poker game/slanging match rings true as well.
Once the film proper starts with the group of climbers finding Anna buried alive, the pace barely lets up for the rest of the running time. When the action pauses, the tension builds up to almost unbearable levels.
As for the DVD itself, there is an excellent commentary by Julian (the director) and William Gilbey, who co-wrote, and edited the film. A fairly standard making-of doc is also included, as well as a short film documenting Julian Gilbey climbing the Eiger and Matterhorn.
