Winner of the 2022 Jury prize at the Cannes Film Festival, Eight Mountains depicts an epic journey of friendship and self-discovery set in the breath-taking Italian Alps.
After meeting as children over a series of summers in the Italian Alps, Pietro (Luca Marinelli) and Bruno (Alessandro Borghi) reunite as adults to rebuild a mountainside cottage which Pietro’s father had bought. The restoration will test their friendship and expose old wounds. The film exposes, over four decades, the complex relationship between Pietro and Bruno.
Patient and profound, The Eight Mountains is a spectacular film, raw and moving, beautifully paced and shot.
