The film was conceived in tandem with the Australian Chamber Orchestra with the view that the music be played live. See more »
Not your typical documentary
Keep in mind when watching this movie that this is not your ordinary documentary about mountains and the movie also doesn't intend to be one. It's a philosophical journey among the high peaks on earth. The writing of Robert Macfarlane is one of the best on contemporary nature writing. The narration in this 'documentary' is therefore also based on his book 'Mountains in my mind'. I'm still convinced the book itself is a bit more exciting than this movie. If you like to read at least.
Mountain tells a amazing philosophical story about the mountains and the humans who conquer and exploit them. It's a movie of not much words, but the words that are spoken will keep floating through your mind. The music made it even more enjoyable. Overall great movie, sometimes it misses the point of it all, but a must watch for anybody who enjoys the outdoors, the mountains or the writing of Macfarlane.
