The bromance genre gets a fascinating new entry with Michael Angelo Covino's funny and engaging film ...

 A startling confession on a bike ride across the South of France becomes the hub for an episodic journey through the lives of two men, in Michael Angelo Covino's clever and honest comedy about a destructive, co-dependent, and inescapable friendship.

Kyle and Mike have been best friends since high school. Can their friendship survive a terrible breach? That question begins during the gruelling uphill of a cycling trip and continues through funerals, the appearance of an old friend and harmonizing gravediggers. Michael Angelo Covino’s utterly idiosyncratic and hilarious bromance, written with his co-star Kyle Marvin, follows a close but dysfunctional bond undergirded by a mutual genius for passive-aggressive sabotage and a true cluelessness in how to deal with women.

Covino made this directorial debut on a minuscule budget, shooting in often dazzlingly elegant long takes and then weaving together the story through time and space with nimble editing. Endearingly strange and wholly original, The Climb will keep you off balance with its unexpected mixture of sweetness and cruelty.

Winner: Un Certain Regard Heart Prize, Cannes 2019.

Winner: Jury Prize, Deauville Film Festival 2019
