Frederik Jacobi

France, year 1769. Philosopher Edmund Burke flees from his home in London and sets out on an expedition through the Alps. His purpose: to describe the Sublime. But the scenic surroundings prove difficult to encapsulate, the ants bite, and the shoes chafe. There’s a certain hilarious quality about the film’s decadent nobleman when he staggers about in the mountains in heavy make-up and a wig, hell-bent on getting his revenge over the treacherous landscape. And at the same time, director Illum Jacobis’ majestic images contain a subtle critique of modern man and our constant need for controlling the nature we inhabit.
