Daniel Craig‘s allies and enemies – movie stars like Ben Whishaw, Léa Seydoux and Dave Bautista – met right amid Tirol‘s picture-book winter landscapes. Producer Barbara Broc- coli was enthusiastic about the „5-star infrastructures from the valley floor up to 3000 meters“, so important for her team and the film shooting itself.
