A perceptive and poetic hybrid of documentary and fiction. It both captures and gently critiques Gabriel's free-spirited, adventurous sensibility.

Director Barbosa's love letter to his late friend is emotionally satisfying and cinematically splendid, with social commentary shoe-horned in for better or worse.

Watching "Gabriel and the Mountain" is like getting to know all sides of a friend's character: You may discover more arrogance than expected, but the elements you always liked are reinforced.

What kind of commercial market there is out there for this kind of fare beyond Brazil, where Buchmann's story is quite well-known, remains a question mark.

Audience Reviews for Gabriel and the Mountain (Gabriel e a montanha)

½

By using the same locations that the real-life Gabriel visited in his travels as well as people who met him along his way playing themselves, Felipe Barbosa creates a profoundly moving character study that blurs the line between reality and fiction to near perfection.
