THREE PEAKS by Jan Zabeil
(93 min, Italy / Germany, color, 2017, English subtitles, North American premiere)
Winner of Variety’s Piazza Grande Award in Locarno THREE PEAKS is a gripping family drama. Aaron (Alexander Fehling) invites his girlfriend Lea (Bérénice Bejo) and her 8-year-old son Tristan on a trip to the mountains. What could be a starting point of a new life together, slowly turns into difficult territory, as the three fight for their positions within the new family. High up in the Three Peaks region in the Italian Dolomites, Aaron and Tristan are faced with their ambivalent love for and deepest fears of one another, while Lea stands in between the two, trying to navigate this triangle. Aaron’s attempts to win the boy’s acceptance soon turn into a dangerous power game.
