A wonderfully personal look at one of our climbing greats, this film is about the motivation to climb, and the love of mountains, not sensationalist portrayal of hard routes. A portrait of scottish winter climbing, routes of all difficulties are captured in the same way - this is about a climber's love of his sport, not about numbers or bragging rights. That said, Andy's resume needs no fanfare, and his climbing speaks for itself. A refreshingly understated climbing film, and a must-see for anyone who loves the scottish mountains. It tells the story of a climber, of failure and success, of loss and discovery, in scotland and the himalayas. Anyone who has read Andy's book will know that his story, and his effortless talent for telling it. A wonderful story, great to hear and beautifully shot. 42 minutes of some of best footage of winter climbing I have seen - certainly got me excited for more, remembering the feeling that keeps me wanting to get out on the hills, winter after winter.

After watching it I instantly wanted to watch it again! Beautifully shot and perfectly told, this is a great look at what makes winter climbing in the scottish mountains so special, seen through the eyes of a coal miner turned mountain guide. I doesn't matter if you're a mountaineer or know nothing about it, you wont be disappointed - a terrific and inspiring watch from beginning to end.

Just finished watching, great job, fantastic look at winter climbing in some very bad conditions, Not really the kind of film I normally watch, but was gripped from the begging right to the end. Well narrated and a very inspiring story from Andy's life good job

Sadly, This film is probably as close to Scotland as I will get this winter - it has left me wanting to pack up my kit immediately and begin the 500 mile journey up there! To leave the comfort of home for the biting cold against your cheeks, the sting of spindrift in your eyes, the crunch of ice beneath your crampons, the contented tiredness that only a day in the mountains brings. Beautifully shot, Distilled shows Scotland in all it's wild and wonderful glory - contrasted and complimented by Andy's stories of his Himalayan expeditions. His unostentatious style of narration leaves even the novice feeling inspired to aspire. Lovers of the mountains will have their feelings fortified... "The mountains are calling and I must go"
