When Scott, a child with no father or mother, is on his snowboard, he dreams of being somewhere else, and of high altitudes: he wants to do 'firsts' and achieve unprecedented exploits. At the age of 18, armed only with his talent, a carefree spirit, endless charm and a substantial pair of balls, he heads to Chamonix, the world mountain capital, the Mecca for all riders. He meets other youngsters there, ski-bums like himself, as well as the lovely Kelly, who will be his first love, and one of his idols, Pierrick Lefranc, a former freeride-star now reduced to selling ski-lifts. With his sweeping turns, pure lines and gracious leaps - that Scott films as no-one has before - he carves out a place for himself in the highly select world of extreme sports, and becomes a media star, with important sponsors behind him. But ultimately it's with a reborn Pierrick, and far from the official sports business, that he'll climb the highest high, the roof of the world, Mount Everest itself, to attempt...

A call for freedom !
29 September 2020 | by cedricgiscosSee all my reviews

Tout là-haut is a dramatic comedy directed by Serge Hazanavicius whih took place in France in 2017. This film, based on a true story, tells the life of Scott, a young snowboarding enthusiast who has only one desire: to snowboard on the Everest. In this initiatory quest, Scott will meet Pierrick, a former mountain guide, who will take him to the top of his sport.

Concerning the acting, the duo Kev Adams/ Vincent Elbaz works well, their characters are both funny and moving!

The scenes shot in the mountains are beautiful and impressive, they transcribe the reality of the Free ride as well as its dangers for people with and without mountain experience. For an audience of experienced athletes, this film may seem a bit far-fetched at times, seeing Scott move with such ease; it seems that nothing can resist him. Everything is a little too easy for him.

In conclusion, this work remains a nice movie to watch with the family.
