The movie revolves around Amelie, a girl struggling with asthma. She is taken to a clinic in South Tyrol, an autonomous province in northern Italy, to be cured. After some time, she decides to get out of this hell (that’s how she feels about it) and soon she’ll meet a new friend named Bart. Together they try to reach the peak of a mountain where, according to an old custom, she can be healed.
The cinematography throughout the film truly captures the beauty of the mountains upon, which Amelie and Bart journey, as do the various elemental forces that they encounter.
Written by Natja Brunckhorst and Jyette-Merle Böhrnsen, Mountain Miracle boasts witty lines and emotive dialogue that is honest in its reflection of hesitant teenage banter, rebellion, self-discovery, and growth.
“Amelie Rennt” was nominated for the Crystal Bear for the Best Film in the Kplus section of the Generation Competition at Berlin Film Festival 2017.
It won the “Special Mention” category by the jury: “With great wit and fast-paced dialogue, this film describes the development of an unlikely friendship between two fascinating characters”.
The German Film Week 2021 in Vietnam, which runs from August 28 to September 18, is an opportunity for the whole family to come together, cherish the experience of story-telling and get a valuable topic to talk about.
The German films have been carefully selected for this purpose. They are meant as an invitation to jointly overcome the difficult times people are in.
The Goethe-Institut wishes that the film week is a meaningful gift to local audiences who are observing recently stay-at-home orders.
