Felix van Groeningen (The Broken Circle Breakdown) and Charlotte Vandermeersch filmed Paolo Cognetti’s best-selling novel as a visually overwhelming parable on the meaning of friendship and the power of nature. Can happiness be found within, or outside in the big wide world? De acht bergen (adapted from Paolo Cognetti’s bestseller ‘Le otto montagne’) is the story of the special friendship between city boy Pietro and Bruno, a boy from the mountains. The two meet as teenagers when Pietro’s family, from Turin, are on holiday in a summerhouse in the Grana mountain valley in Valle d’Aosta.
