The cinematographer Du Jie delivers moments of visual ecstasy that almost make us forget that they're framing a reckless cipher.

We're never far away from a crude digression demoting an ethereal sense of artistry to hunkered-down artifice.

"1 Mile Above" is a spare, at times lovely film based on the novel "Zhuan Shan" by Xie Wang Lin.

An act of brotherly love, an adventure, an endurance test, a spiritual test and a dangerous trek; these are all the descriptions that fit One Mile Above, which has been likened to The Motorcycle Diaries
