Unifrance has debuted an official trailer for a mysterious, intriguing film titled The Mountain, made by a French filmmaker named Thomas Salvador. Salvador also wrote and stars in this as the lead character, Pierre, who gets lost in the mountains after being pulled in by their magnificent mystery, and majesty. This first premiered at the 2022 Cannes Film Festival in the Directors' Fortnight sidebar, but I didn't see it until the Sitges Film Festival in the fall - here's my full review. Pierre, a Parisian engineer, goes up in the Alps for his work. Irresistibly attracted by what surrounds him, he camps out alone high in the mountains and leaves behind his everyday life. Up there he meets Léa, a chef of an alpine restaurant, while strange glows glitter in the deep mountain. It takes place in Chamonix near Mont Blanc, in the French Alps, and everything changes when he notices these weird lights at night crawling around the mountains. It's a beautiful story about the allure and indescribable magic of mountains - he is forever changed by his experiences. Check it out below.
Here's the official US trailer (+ poster) for Thomas Salvador's The Mountain, direct from YouTube:
