The Eight Mountains

“A stunning, often profound and frequently jaw-droppingly gorgeous tale of two friends from childhood through adulthood set against the Italian Alps.” – Associated Press 

“A very deep and meaningful story about platonic friendship.” – FilmWeek (NPR Los Angeles) 

“The film is a meditative, slow crescendo of wounded feelings and quiet epiphanies.” – Slant Magazine


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 Italian with English subtitles.
