Alive was the one with the athletes crashing in the mountain and having to eat each other to survive. Try going to and search for films with the main actor. It might jog your memory.

"Somewhere in Time"is the Christopher Reeve one - good film.

almostanangel (most appropriate name might I say for this ) - do you realise that film is one of the most hotly debated on the net? I have tried to remember the name of the film you mean for years (loved the film and want to watch again) and most forums will tell you it is Sole Survivor - but the story line of Sole Survivor is completely wrong!

Hope you get an answer from somewhere to put me (and now my mum and aunty as well) out of our misery.

is the plane crash one called "a matter of life and death" with David Niven in? The blurb on the back of the box says "it's night over europe, the night of the 2nd May 1945. a crippled lancaster bomber struggles home across the english channel. all the crew are dead save for the young plot desperately scanning the radio waves for signs of life. the next morning washed up on an english beach, suadron leader peter carter is still alive, it's a miracle ... or is it? he should have died that night and now he must face the clestial court of appeal for his right to live.

this one?
