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 THE EIGHT MOUNTAINS, winner of the Jury Prize at the 2022 Cannes Film Festival, Felix Van Groeningen and Charlotte Vandermeersch (the filmmakers behind the Academy Award®-nominated THE BROKEN CIRCLE BREAKDOWN) 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.
