Three Peaks (2019)



Critic Consensus: Three Peaks may be somewhat less than the sum of its parts, but what remains is still a tense, provocative look at a dark family dynamic.

Movie Info

Fatherhood, suspicion and resentment are a combustible formula in Jan Zabeil's elegant, unnerving domestic thriller. Aaron (Alexander Fehling, Homeland) has found the woman of his life in his girlfriend Lea (Bérénice Bejo, The Artist) but her young son Tristan still imagines his mother reconciling with his father. On what should be an idyllic vacation in the soaring Italian Dolomites, Aaron fights to win over Tristan and cement his place in this family, while Lea wrestles with conflicting loyalties to her son and her lover. Yet when Tristan disappears into the mountains, it's unclear who is in the most danger. Complex, deceptive and gripping to the last second, Three Peaks chips away at our darkest nightmares to reveal the everyday anxieties on which they feed.

There's just enough closure to its inconclusive climax to allow you to relax, even if it doesn't give you much to terribly ponder during the drive home.

The double impulse at the heart of "Three Peaks" is ultimately self-defeating.

July 24, 2019 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

"Three Peaks" is a dark little family drama, a ticking time bomb of a movie that is well made but never totally satisfies.

July 11, 2019 | Full Review…

Three Peaks is a thriller of a decidedly unconventional sort...A more clichéd effort would have succumbed to third-act fireworks as a reward for enduring such a slow-burn build-up. But Zabeil rejects predictable paths.

This isn't your daddy's drama/thriller. It's a meticulously crafted film that, in its very self-disciplined way, is far stronger than movies that go for the emotional jugular from the git-go.

June 28, 2019 | Full Review…

Three Peaks is so thinly conceived and executed that, for the most part, it fails to justify its existence as a stand-alone feature.
