The Eight Mountains (12)
Co-winner of the Cannes Jury Prize, The Eight Mountains is a gorgeous, sweeping story about a friendship between two boys, formed over summer holidays and stretching into adulthood. Set in the pristine Alpine valley of Aosta and in Nepal, the cinematography is breathtaking. A rich and novelistic world is created, full of details slowly accrued, mimicking the ancient glacial landscapes of its setting. It’s a quiet, subtle and compelling study of an intense and transformative friendship and of how nature enters the soul. “Wildly beautiful and tender … infused with unspoken emotion.” David Sexton, New Statesman
