Red Bull Media House, in association with MSP Films, presents 'DAYS OF MY YOUTH', a new action-packed film that examines every skier's lifelong affinity for the sport. This movie reminds us of that special feeling of our very first time on skis, and proves that skiing can keep you feeling young for a lifetime.
MSP really missed a great opportunity with this one. The premise is great: days of our youth; enjoying the days when we were carefree; when little mattered. Unfortunately the theme never really carried through, aside from the cut scenes with narration. The sequence with Cody, Banks and Richard, where they were just having fun, is the highlight of the film. The James Heim sequence was completely out of place and belonged in a different film. At the 3/4 point, the film tries to redeem itself with a nice park montage showing the progression from the days of our youth to adulthood and back again. Why is the Cody skiing the crack POV sequence not part of the main film and only shown in the credits!?! Seriously, WTF!? In the end, this movie feels like it was a series of ski scenes left over from previous MSP films. I'm a big MSP fan, but I am seriously disappointed in this effort.
