"Soaring, inspiring, spiritual - a pinnacle of achievement"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

The majesty of Mountain invites us reflect on our place in this world and our purpose in life. The mountains speak to us – but are we listening- The spectacular photography, accompanied by thought-provoking observation, draws us on to ponder the higher questions. At the end of the very best of musical performances the notes fade – there is a profound, magic and momentary silence before the appreciation of thundrous applause. So it is with Mountain.

"A kaleidoscope of mountains and activities"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Mountain was a kaleidoscope of mountains, activities and music. Commentary was exceptional. Music was exceptional and cinematography was equally brilliant. The documentary certainly sharpened ones senses. I would recommend Mountain to all of those who enjoy Mountains and associated activities.

Description

A Cinematic & Musical Odyssey

Only three centuries ago, setting out to climb a mountain would have been considered close to lunacy. The idea scarcely existed that wild landscapes might hold any sort of attraction. Mountains were places of peril, not beauty. How then have mountains come to hold us spellbound, drawing us into their dominion, often at the cost of our lives?
By the time Mount Everest was vanquished in the midtwentieth century, mountaineering had become a quest for mastery rather than a search for mystery. Mountains were seen as adversaries to be overcome; places where fear could be taken to the edge – or beyond.

Millions are now enchanted by the magic of mountains. And where once their remoteness protected their purity, mountains have today become theatres for recreation: managed and commodified as parks and playgrounds.
But mountains are so much more than an escape, or an enemy to be overcome. Their greatest value lies in their power to inspire wonder and awe: to remind us of the limits of our schemes and ambition.

Critic Reviews:

  • “A visual and musical spectacle that showcases the majesty of nature and man's helplessness to it.” – Globe and Mail
  • “One of the most visceral essay films ever made, with Peedom and her Sherpa altitude cinematographer Renan Ozturk unfurling a series of glistening images that should be seen only on the biggest of big screens.” – Hollywood Reporter
  • “In spite of the sometimes lofty turns of phrase, Mountain is most awe-inspiring in its quieter moments.” – National Post
