Germany, United States | 2011 | Julia Loktev
Gael Garcia Bernal and fiery-haired Hani Furstenberg play a globe-trotting, engaged couple who go on a backpacking trip in the remote and beautiful Caucasus Mountains. Led by a seasoned Georgian guide, the carefree lovers enjoy their wilderness trek through exotic, scenic locales until one unfortunate misstep changes everything. This tense, mesmerizing, minimalist drama evokes Herzog, Rossellini, Kelly Reichardt, and others. A 2011 New York Film Festival selection. “Original and emotionally profound.” –Entertainment Weekly.
