The Eight Mountains

a film by Felix van Groeningen and
Charlotte Vandermeersch

After meeting as children over a series of summers in the Italian Alps, Pietro (Luca Marinelli) and Bruno (Alessandro Borghi) reunite as adults to build a mountainside cottage which becomes a site of both reflection and reconciliation. In The Eight Mountains, winner of the Jury Prize at the 2022 Cannes Film Festival, Felix Van Groeningen and Charlotte Vandermeersch (Beautiful Boy, The Broken Circle Breakdown) trace with exquisite beauty and grace the life trajectories of two men whose peak moments and low ebbs become one with the landscape that has shaped them.

“Magnificent.  A gorgeous, glorious retreat.  One of the strongest and most vibrantly shot pictures in the Cannes Competition.”  
–Justin Chang, Los Angeles Times

“*****  (Highest Rating). This is a movie with air in its lungs and love in its heart. It is spacious and unhurried in its devotion to beauty and to what it means to be human. This film has mystery and passion, it climbs mountainous heights and rewards you with the opposite of vertigo: a sort of exaltation.”  
–Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian

“Joyful and grateful and wise.   Novelistic in the best sense. It immerses you in the world of its characters – both human and Alpine – But it lives and breathes in beautifully cinematic terms.“
–Jessica Kiang, Variety
