New Release: High Lane DVD

High adventure — and we mean high — is on hand in the mountain expedition thriller movie High Lane, which arrived on DVD on Feb. 8, 2011. IFC priced the disc at $24.98.

Towering heights and beautiful vistas make for a bunch of really scary situations in this French film, which immediately calls to mind 1993’s Cliffhanger (not to mention those Leni Riefenstahl mountain climbing flicks from the 1920s and 1930s).

In High Lane, a group of friends on vacation in Eastern Europe embark on an ambitious mountain expedition along a trail that they soon discover has been closed for repair. Continuing anyway — of course — they quickly find the thrill of this foolish challenge turns sour as it becomes clear that not only is the path a lot more dangerous than they thought, but also they are not alone. Fear exposes old traumas and brings hidden emotions to the surface, and before we know it, everyone is fighting for their survival, against the elements, the mountain peaks and something even more terrifying.

The first feature film by director Abel Ferry, High Lane stars a young and beautiful French cast that includes Fanny Valette, Johan Libereau, Raphael Lenglet, Nicolas Giraud and Maud Wyler.

No DVD supplements come with High Lane.
