Video Review: Absinthe Films' Neverland

By

Neverland by Absinthe Films from Absinthe Films on Vimeo. Absinthe Films delivers once again! – Neverland, the 9th creation of Justin Hostynek and Patrick Armbruster at Absinthe Films, is the type of movie I have no problem watching every morning. – From the dreamy, twilight-ish music at the beginning and the intro in Japan, my desire to shred increased 10 fold. – They do a really good job of capturing the fun-ness of snowboarding as well as just being in the mountains; powder, pillows, slashes, tree jibs, rails, pow turns, sprays and slashes, and some pretty impressive tricks. – It’s refreshing to see a video that has riding footage other than just in-runs and landings of jumps. – Also, something rare these days, is a women’s section, that’s pretty damn impressive.My favorite parts of the movie were: Nicolas Muller’s intro in Japan: – Smooth airs, launching through trees, bouncing through pow, white rooms, Muller Methods, etc. Gigi Ruf’s segments: Ripping lines, progressive technical tricks, simple tricks with sick style, deep pow roof line jibs, and everything else Gigi does that makes it obvious he’s having a blast. Travis Rice, of course: – His hilarious “Prince” like intro, sweet natural airs combined with technical tricks, double corks and flips every which way, and shredding some steeps. Other notable parts by DCP, Roman Demarchi, Annie Boulanger, Marie France Roy, Bode Merrill and Sylvain Bourbousson. If you like rails and tight pants, check out Cale Zima’s section; it’s definitely not my style, but the kid’s pretty entertaining, even if he is wearing his little sister’s pants. In the end, I’d recommend this movie to everyone. – Even skiers.
