    L'ascension

    Ludovic Bernard (2017)

    A young man from the suburbs with no mountaineering experience decides to climb Mt Everest to show a woman he'd do anything for her. Though technically based on the true story of Nadir Dendoune, this is only in a very loose sense. Indeed, the main character's name, age, ethnicity, relations and entire motivation for wanting to climb to the top of Mount Everest were changed for the film. In fact, writer/director Ludovic Bernard never read the book which the film purports to adapt.

    Canción de la nieve

    Guzzi Lantschner (1954)

    A beautiful journalist falls in love with a foreign skier who arrives in Bariloche to take part in a ski competition. The film is the greatest exponent of a unique cinematographic movement: Argentine mountain cinema, which began in the early 1950s from a group formed around the Austrian-German skier, actor and director Guzzi Lantschner, and which brought together men and women from different corners of Europe in Bariloche. However, the film did not have the expected success and the commercial failure led to the dissolution of the sub-genre.
