A great movie about trail/sky running, nature and ... the mountains
This is a very inspiring, passionate and visually stunning movie. A must for trail runners and trail walkers out there. If you love running, but especially trail running, you will love this movie ... a runner's take on the meaning of it all. The movie focuses on running and "skimo" (ski mountaineering in the argot), racing, being immersed in Nature in the mountains, and, last but not least, also about friendship. It provides a close up on Kilian Jornet, his philosophy, his source of inspiration and motivation and his life story. Related information can be extracted from his equally intense books ("Run or Die" or the recent "The Invisible Frontier") . Let's hope the sequels are on (al least) a par!
