The Trouble with Nature is a highly original period drama set in 1769. Arch conservative philosopher Edmund Burke has fled London, debt collectors and a midlife crisis to go on a grand tour of the Alps and rewrite his book on the Sublime. Accompanied by his long-suffering servant Awak overloaded with creature comforts from civilised London, the pompous bewigged Burke is incongruous in the stunning Alpine scenery. First time director and mountaineer Illum Jacobi assembles breathtaking cinematography, witty dialogue and imagery cleverly satirising the romantic ideals of the period.
