/ Yet another font film
Have you seen Etranger - 85 days in Font?
It is about Font, about places that most climbers don't go to, the climbers are there to to capture the essence of what font is about.
OK, there are both well-known climbers, but also quite a few climbers people have yet to hear about. There is a wide range of age and climbing style which I think adds another dimension to the film.
There are hard problems being climbed, but there are also ones that are in the realms of possibility for mere mortals.
I could go on, but I think that bleau.info and 8a.nu sum it up better than I could.

I know Neil would really like to hear back from people about what they think of his film.
A genuinely beautifully and thoughtfully shot bouldering film - in some ways more like a collection of wonderfully framed scenes than the usual panned out or tracking shot of someone strong making something hard look easy (though Nalle does manage to make the same problems look both hard-whilst falling off-and easy-when sending-within matters of minutes)
From a very big French site
The challenge was very risky from the director of this film, But the boulders were filmed really well, the mood and the lighting of the forest makes this an excellent film with a good choice of music, The interviews are fresh and natural and the climbers climb well which adds fluidity to the whole film, And then there is Nalle the best boulderer in the word, what was nice is that passages were chosen for most part unknown, Phew we got o t of karma, carnage and other classics, we were treated will a film that is really out of sight
Personally I can't get enough of Font films. It's one of my favorite places in the world, not even in climbing terms, it's just an amazing place to spend time. Sadly I don't live there and so these films help me to stay motivated in the meantime.
Great work Neil, you've definitely shown me a few blocs I'll be hunting out next time around!
That's the one. I'm not really into bouldering but really loved it.
thanks man :)
I'm really glad you liked it
