Mountain review


This movie, documentary, classical music montage, philosophical essay about mountains was pretty spectacular and nerve wracking. In some ways this was a great introduction to the concept of  human perception of mountains. 

The initial scenes were vertigo inducing but then went onto a little of the history of human fascination.  It was clearly a collaboration of the Australian Chamber Orchestra and film makers to use a wide range of stunning mountain footage with lots of Vivaldi,  with a dose of Beethoven and Arvo Pärt.  

This  type of movie is always a tough angle to approach being such a wide range of genres and potential approaches. It worked very well and certainly felt like being at classical concert with a mountainous backdrop. 

This screening at ANU had an enthusiastic introduction by the director Jennifer Peedom
