The simple story follows one day in Simon Peter’s life as he wakes up, goes climbing a rock mountain with his friend Thomas, watches his friend die, which leads the day to start over. This continuous time loop seems to have no end at all. Will Simon ever be able to break the time loop? To find out, tune in for “The Climb”

The story on the face of it is a tale of friendship. At another level, the short film is an expression of the writer’s battle with depression and his struggle to manage with its effects. Finally, the implied subtext of the movie is a conversation between the two warring sides of one’s mind when suffering through depression.

Pros: -High tier cinematography
-Well written conversations
-Good editing
Cons: -Basically just groundhog day
-A little confusing, but not overwhelmingly so
This is my first review for this site, and I scrolled through films that looked interesting to me- particularly sci-fi, and foreign student films, something that I have not been exposed to as much. I was happily surprised by the intricate nature of the film, with a runtime that suited it well and a story that kept me engaged. Overall, the film was a little confusing, but I was able to ignore that fact and appreciate it for what it was- a fun, intersting sci-fi short.
