Le otto montagne / The Eight Mountains

by Felix van Groeningen, Charlotte Vandermeersch Gala Premieres

Paradisiacal snow-covered peaks tower high above in the Aosta Valley. During a summer vacation in the mountain village of Grana, 11-year-old city boy Pietro meets Bruno, a local of the same age. Despite their different lives, an intimate friendship soon develops between the two. Years later, they take different paths. While Bruno starts a family in his native village where he never really feels at home, the restless Pietro is drawn to the wide world. Nevertheless, he returns again and again – in search of refuge and friendship. Stylish, fluid and simply beautiful, LE OTTO MONTAGNE, based on the novel of the same name by Paolo Cognetti, is an ode to the meaning of friendship. The film was awarded the Jury Prize at Cannes.
