The mountains close in more and more tightly, and it seems as though there’s no longer any hope. Only a bit of sky is visible directly above our heads. lt has a disheartening effect on us. We are overwhelmed and keep silent. Suddenly at a sharp turn in the road, a huge chasm opens up on our right, and quite close to us, we see the ice-covered peak of Mount Kazbek with its glaciers sparkling white in the sun. lt is cheek by jowl with us, placid and tall, mute. A mysterious feeling courses through us. The cliff stands there as if conjured up by the other cliffs. We feel as though a being from another world is looking at us.
The Loneliest Planet (2011), a film by Julia Loktev.
