To survive after a plane crash, two strangers must forge a connection in order to survive the extreme elements of a distant mountain. When they realize that no help is forthcoming, they embark on a dangerous confrontation against wildlife. While waiting to have the time to watch Blade Runner 2049, we had to console ourselves by watching The Mountain Between Us, also released in theaters in Quebec this week. And yes, this film is a consolation prize, a title it carries with perfection since The Mountain Between Us is not really a film that we should necessarily watch.
Sold as a survival film, The Mountain Between Us is a thousand miles from what movie trailers are trying to show us. It’s simply the Fifty Shades of Gray of the survival movie.
