Nanga Parbat tells the true story of the brothers Reinhold and Gunther Messner, who set out to climb Pakistan’s Nanga Parbat, as part of the 1970 german expedition. Both brothers reach the top of Parbat’s by the Rupal Face, though tragically only Reinhold survives the descent. Reinhold is accused of having abandoned his brother for an excess of ambition. The film exposes the vision of the tragedy that Reinhold Messner has always defended and that the evidences seems to demonstrate: Günther, then 23, was buried by an avalanche during the descent through the Diamir Face.
