Episode 381: The Eight Mountains

This adaptation of Paolo Cognetti’s novel about a lifetime-spanning friendship set in the northwest Italian alps is even better than its excellent source material. Spending time with Pietro and Bruno is as poignant as it is resonant, their lives and the metaphors of this beautiful and sometimes heartbreaking story often inspirational. With a backdrop of spectacular mountains and perfectly matching soundtrack, it’s easy to get swept away by the ebb and flow of this memorable relationship. Also beards. The film has tremendous beards, too.
