Höhenfeuer (Alpine Fire)

119' - 1985 - Drama - Dialogue: German
Director: Fredi M. Murer With: Thomas Nock, Johanna Lier, Dorothea Moritz
Alpine Fire is a moody story of life on top of the mountains, away from the rest of the human
race. It depicts the solitary life of silent, industrious people. We watch one closely-knit family as they go through their daily routines. Their home is completely isolated. It is a hard life, determined by the lay of the land and its nature, by ancient traditions and customs. The drama is introduced gradually by the sexual awakening of the son, a deaf-mute who has never been sent down the valey to get proper education because his father intentionally resists the modern age. His sister Belli is not only a servant in her own home but also her brother's teacher. From early childhood they have been an inseparabale pair. They love one another...
