Storyline

Nora and Solveig are hiking through snow-covered, rough, but beautiful scenery on a tour of several days that will take the two young women to the top of a mountain. Solveig, three months pregnant, seems incapable of doing anything the way Nora wants her to. The further the women advance on their trip, the closer they come to the place where a tragic accident happened two years earlier; one that changed their lives completely. Solveig hopes that the trip will set in motion a process of soul-searching that will help them to cope with their grief and give their relationship a chance. But although their plan sounds sensible, in reality, it proves to be a painful process during which all their pent-up bitterness, hurt feelings and fears gradually surface. The closer the women get to the site of the accident, the more they seem to be drifting towards the end of their relationship. Written by Anonymous

Redemption and reparation after great loss
19 February 2013 | by OJTSee all my reviews

Fjellet (The mountain) is a slow paced story about young women who are hiking in beautiful scenery in the Norwegian mountains in late autumn time, walking towards a mountain, two years after a traumatic event happening at the same place. One of them has brought the other back to make her open more after the happening back then.

We sense that something is between them, which has put a difficult strung on their relationship. The more they talk, this comes stronger upon us, resulting in bickering and quarreling. We understand that they are more than friends, just that they have drifted apart. Will this be trip repair their relationship back to what it once was? We understand that great love in some way was ruined by this trip two years ago. And what did really happen back then when they lost their common son, five year old Vetle?

This is a film about dealing with deep sorrow, and the redemption, with a underlying terror. The Two actors, Ellen Dorrit Petersen and Marte Magnusdotter Solem are doing great job, and the mountain, or rather the nature and weather is the third actor here, being background for thoughts and making the pace of the movie and the trip. It's a subtle and slow told story which allows lots of thoughts and emotion.

A beautiful film, only if you can stand a slow one. This us not everybody's cup of tea. Many will think there's nothing happening here. And they're right. All is happening on an emotional level and the fact that they really are not equally the mother of the child.

The problem is the lack of plot. We're not that lost in the story. Well done, but too boring if you're not very into this kind of loss yourself.
