Once again, these emotions – and many more – will have a starring role in his new movie, La cima (lit. “The Summit”), which is currently being shot and which, once again, is being made as a joint venture between companies in France and Spain. This epic story stars two actors who are very much in demand right now: Patricia López Arnaiz, the favourite among the nominees for various impending awards thanks to her work in Ane Is Missing [+leggi anche:

According to the film’s synopsis provided by the production companies, Mateo (Rey) is taking on the most dangerous mountain on the planet, the Annapurna, for the first time – he has challenged himself to reach its peak and thus, despite all opposition, keep an old promise. However, during his ascent, he has an accident that leaves him unconscious and seriously injured. Hours later, he is rescued by the brave and feisty Ione (López Arnaiz), a seasoned mountain climber who – in the midst of a complicated time in her personal life – is spending the winter in a refuge, alone and cut off from the rest of the world. Despite her not understanding the reasons that brought the man all the way here, she will try to help him to accomplish his goal. The screenplay has been written by filmmaker Nerea Castro, based on an original storyline by the director.

by Rodrigo Sorogoyen, among countless others) began on 21 December and is continuing for six weeks on location in Catalonia, the Basque Country, Aragon, the Alps and Nepal. In Cormenzana’s own words, as well as attempting to make the climbing scenes as realistic as possible, this “epic film homing in on values that are so vital today, such as loyalty and comradeship, will show how, in spite of their fears, the protagonists will take risks that will allow them to outdo themselves and evolve, and in this way, they will come to understand that life should be lived to the max and savoured at every single moment. I would like to generate those same desires in the viewer – the will to dare to achieve their goals unfalteringly and without losing any of the optimism to continue down the path we have chosen.”
