FILMART MUO / FILM AND SPIRITUALITY
Pietro is a boy from a bustling Italian city, Bruno is a boy from a forgotten Alpine village. One returns to the mountains every summer with his parents, the other never leaves the hills. They share a love of majestic peaks, a complicated relationship with their own fathers and, in time, thick beards. Just as nature grows, withers, and flourishes again, their friendship changes. A loss in Pietros life takes him back to the countryside after many years, and a reunion with Bruno changes his view of the world. Felix van Groeningen and Charlotte Vandermeersch won the Jury Prize at the Cannes Film Festival for their adaptation of Paolo Cognettis book of the same name about the transformation of boys into men, the value of friendship and the search for meaning in the silence of the spectacular Alps and Himalayas.
