My father took these.

He was a maniac for the camera.

That's me.

That's Felipe and Nando.

That's Alex Morales,

he died instantly.

That's Antonio, captain of the team.

After 20 years, you analyse a lot.

You remember people, heroism.

"The Miracle of the Andes",

that's what they called it.

Many people come up to me

and say that had they been there,

they surely would have died.

But that makes no sense.

Because untiI you're

in a situation like that,

you have no idea how you'll behave.

To be affronted by solitude

without decadence,

or a single material thing

to prostitute it

elevates you to a spiritual plane...

where I felt the presence of God.

There's the God

they taught me about at school...

And there is the God that's hidden

by what surrounds us

in this civilisation.

That's the God I met on the mountain.

- Could you get me some tea?

- Yes, sir.

- Want some tea?

- No, thanks.

That's it.

Come on! Give me the ball!

Over here!

Watch out!

Where did you stay in Paris?

- Excuse me, please.

- Paris is not for you, Canessa.

- Why not?

- You're too intense.

How can I justify that to the guys?

He missed practice every week.

- He's OK.

- He missed the plane too.

I'm team captain. I'll say what's OK.

If you want to play in a rugby team,

you have to give 100%. Right?

Everybody to the right of the plane.

Let's get it.

- Let me get in.

- Go on.

- Mama, look.

- What?

- The mountains are so beautiful.

- Don't make me look.

- They look like big teeth.

- We'll land in 20 minutes.

Good. Let's talk about something

else. Have a chocolate.

Thank you.

It's clouding up a bit.

- Just stay above the weather.

- No problem.

What's more important to you?

Rugby or girls?

- Girls. You?

- Girls.

- But when I'm playing, it's rugby.

- Unless girls are watching?

Right.

Come on, switch seats.

I want to see the mountains.

Don't climb on the seats, OK?

Watch yourself.

Uruguayan 571, cleared to 10,000ft.

Thank you.

- Your tea, sir.

- Thank you.

Turning on the seat belt signs.

Get those kids seated.

We're going to hit some weather

on our approach.

We'll be landing soon.

Everybody, please sit down.

Do you think they hear you?

Come on now. Sit down.

- See? Now sit!

- Anything to calm your nerves.

What's going on?

- Look what Alonso's doing.

- Ladies and gentlemen,

put on your parachutes!

We're jumping into the Andes!

- Put that down and sit down.

- All right, all right.

Put that cigarette out.

- My God!

- You OK?

- Nando, is everything all right?

- Yes, just an air pocket.

Mom, it scared me, too.

Mother of God, no!

- Oh, shit!

- Full throttle. Come on!

What happened?

Are we supposed to fly

so close to the mountains?

HaiI Mary, full of grace,

the Lord is with Thee...

Power! We need more power!

I can't...!

- Oh, man!

- It's stopped.

Jesus!

I think I'm all right. Alex?

- He's dead!

- Zerbino, are you OK?

People are hurt. I've only been

in med school six months.

- Help me out.

- Eduardo. Where's he going?

- Is Canessa OK?

- Yes...

- Where's Eduardo?

- He went back.

- Eduardo, come back.

- Help Canessa. Help him.

Lilliana!

I'm all right.

I can't breathe.

It's the altitude. You're OK.

Just relax and breathe.

- What should I do?

- Look up there.

Canessa! Help Federico.

- His leg is cut.

- I'm fine. Help the wounded.

- I saved us by saying HaiI Mary.

- Move out the way.

What should I do?

- Go get some air.

- OK.

Just sit right there.

I'm going to use a handkerchief

to clean your nose.

Bobby! Bobby Francois!

- Hey, Carlitos! Smoke?

- Yeah.

Stay with me, please.
