Two young Italian boys spend their childhoods together in a secluded alpine village roaming the surrounding peaks and valleys before their paths diverge and 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, the directors 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. “The spiritual dimension of Pietro and Bruno’s bond has its appeal, and one of the movie’s pleasures is that it takes male friendship seriously.” —New York Times
