The story begins with the liberation of the Mauthausen Concentration Camp. Iakovos stays four more months in the camp where he and everyone else suffered total de-humanization. The film chronicles his first steps back into humanity.
The Silent Mountain is a movie about the war in WWI between the Austrians and the Italians fought in the Dolomite Mountains. I knew nothing of this war, which some have called the White War because more people died from the elements than from the fighting
The movie has a good mix of intrigue, mixed with a love story during a war, however
It takes on a completely new direction at the end which I found totally surprising and after checking, a true account of the events during this time.
I recommend to movie to everyone including families. Bloodshed, not any bad language I could remember, a few crude comments by solders and no nudity. Go see this movie!
