I fell in love with this film instantly and would happily have stayed in my seat and watched it again.
It’s an epic journey of friendship and self-discovery set in the breath-taking Italian Alps, which themselves are a major character in the film. It charts the complex relationship between Pietro and Bruno who first meet as children when Pietro’s Turin family vacations in an isolated village at the base of the Alpine slopes.
As time passes, Pietro’s father’s death reunites the two in realizing his dream of constructing a cabin on the Alps, and the project and subsequent explorations of the awe-inspiring mountain range bond Pietro and Bruno in a shared purpose.
Winner of the Jury Prize at the 2022 Cannes Film Festival and a real gem.
The ever-excellent Jim Broadbent and Penelope Wilton star in this classic tale of a man who goes out to post a letter to a dying friend and just continues walking.
A road-movie along the lines of The Straight Story as Fry reflects on ageing and missed opportunities in this uniquely British way, as he walks across the land to meet his friend in person.
Adapted by Rachel Joyce from her 2012 Man Booker Prize-longlisted bestseller of the same title, Broadbent perfectly encapsulates a man who has lived his whole life without an adventure and doesn’t think he’ll be missed when setting out on his journey. A touching British drama.
