Movie Info

Only three centuries ago, setting out to climb a mountain would have been considered close to lunacy. Mountains were places of peril, not beauty, an upper world to be shunned, not sought out. Why do mountains now hold us spellbound, drawing us into their dominion, often at the cost of our lives? MOUNTAIN is a cinematic and musical collaboration between acclaimed director Jennifer Peedom (SHERPA) and the Australian Chamber Orchestra (ACO), one of the greatest chamber orchestras in the world. Shot by the world's best adventure cinematographers and written by best-selling author Robert Macfarlane, this feature documentary will explore the troubled and triumphant history of our timeless fascination with mountains.

One of the most visceral essay films ever made, with Peedom and her Sherpa altitude cinematographer Renan Ozturk unfurling a series of glistening images that should be seen only on the biggest of big screens.

This documentary is simple to its core in its premise and construction, yet hugely affecting.

While these images eventually become repetitious, they are sublime.

Ravishingly beautiful.

At any rate, this is certainly a film that needs to be seen and experienced on the big screen, and despite its minor flaws, proves quite a mountainous achievement.

Sublime, cerebral, poetic and musically evocative, Mountain takes us - it seems - to every mountain in the world in what appears to be a floating armchair, sometimes high above the peaks.
