A Lonely Place to Die

de Julian Gilbey



A group of five mountaineers are climbing in the highlands of Scotland when they accidentally discover a girl who has been buried alive. After rescuing her, they head for the nearest town to look for help, but the girl’s captors are watching them closely... Just to get an idea of how seriously Julian Gilbey took this film, suffice it to say that he spent time training up in the heights to get to know the challenge his characters were going to be exposed to from up close and to design a mis-en-scene that captures the true vertigo of the locations. A very intense thriller that leaves the spectator knocked out.


Julian Gilbey

Debuted with the cult film Reckoning Day (02), that anticipated his taste for action and thrillers. It was followed by Rollin' with the Nines (06) and Rise of the Footsoldier (08), one of the top selling British films in domestic format.
