The Eight Mountains
Directors Felix van Groeningen (The Broken Circle Breakdown) and Charlotte Vandermeersch achieve another remarkable film with the story of Pietro and Bruno who meet in the Italian Alps as children and become fast friends. Over their divergent lives, they reconnect again and again around the mountain where they met. A potent exploration of friendship, resilience, and recognition, this is an unforgettable film intimately felt, and beautifully filmed in magnificent locations. “A movie with air in its lungs and love in its heart,” to quote The Guardian.
