The Eight Mountains, dir. Felix van Groeningen & Charlotte Vandermeersch, Italy / Belgium / France 2022, 147 min., Italian with English subtitles, 12A

The lifelong friendship between Pietro and Bruno, two boys from different backgrounds, unfolds in the dramatic environs of a secluded Alpine village. Over the years Bruno remains faithful to his mountain, while Pietro is the one who comes and goes. Their encounters introduce them to love and loss, reminding them of their origins, as they discover what it means to be true friends for life.

Winner of the Grand Jury Prize at last year’s Cannes, Felix van Groeningen shares directing duties for the first time with actress, writer and regular collaborator Charlotte Vandermeersch, as the two craft a visually arresting tale of self-discovery.
