An alpine film by Nicolas Rey – two good hours - 16 mm - 2005



A film that starts like an odd documentary on ski resorts suddenly declares its subject to be aluminum. And it's all downhill from there, evoking in chapters the history of capitalism in the 20th century, the death of the God Progress in the valleys of the Alps and the question of the relationship between State and Industry. All's fair in love and snow.
