Brazilian traveler film.
Mozjoukine15 November 2017
Young sustainable traveler student João Pedro Zappa works his way through interchangeably scenic African countries, with the aid of interchangeably affable African locals. The fact that the lead is a plausibly non movie star type is an asset and, when he links up with his equally unglamorous lady friend and they bicker about missing out on the bunji jumps between romantic interludes, attention picks up for a while.

Some added impact from the photos of the real traveler who lost his life on this excursion (they tell you that in the opening scene) but this one is a very long 127 minutes.

I didn't like INTO THE WILD enough to want to revisit it.

Beautiful, perfect depiction of the soul of travelling

28th STOCKHOLM INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL. DAY 3, NOV 10th 2017. "Gabriel and the Mountain" (Gabriel e a montanha) (2017) had its Swedish premiere at the festival on Nov 9th.

‪Backpacking captured. If Lonely Planet was a film, it would be "Gabriel and the Mountain" (2017) by Brazilian director Fellipe Barbosa.‬

‪Like travelling. For real. You're there with Gabriel, walking beside him on the slopes of Kilimanjaro, Tanzania or trekking to reach the Sapitwa peak, talking with same people, kissing his girlfriend, jumping from the cliff by a waterfall, drinking wine on a beach in Zanzibar.‬
