Ascension from Ascension Le Film on Vimeo.
"Well, the movie is first of all a black humor movie : we wanted to make laugh with the bad situation of a crippled man doing a traditionnal ascent. And to make everything even worse, we wanted the movie to loop. A sisyphean, perpetual struggle. Therefore, this is also about all the struggles and the perpetual fights in life and about beliefs.
It was not meant to be, as I have seen in a comment somewhere, "a judgment from an atheist over the stupidity of the religion". It would be actually the exact opposite, but in a more personnal way.
But, again, our main purpose was to make laugh.
Hope it helped :)" ~ Ascension Le Film
