Three Peaks is a somber Italian-German drama about a man (Alexander Fehling) and his girlfriend (Bérénice Bejo) attempting to make a life together with her young son (Arian Montgomery). While on vacation in the Dolomites, a striking mountain range in northeastern Italy, the boy disappears and the frantic search instigates a dark night of the soul for the couple. Director Jan Zabeil handles this material with nuance and sensitivity, leading to an affecting climax.
