Three Peaks 2017
PG-13 | 1h 34min | Drama | 28 June 2019 (USA)
Aaron wants to become a family with his girlfriend and her 8-year-old son, but high up in the Italian Dolomites, his attempts to win the boy’s acceptance turn into a dangerous power game.
Lea (Berenice Bejo), her boyfriend Aaron (Alexander Fehling), and her son Tristan (Arian Montgomery) backpack into the Italian. mountains and stay at a remote cabin. The focus here is on the interpersonal dynamic between the three, with the main emphasis being on Aaron’s attempts at winning over the acceptance of Tristan, while Tristan tries to remain loyal to his father back home.
This is a very slow-burn film, actually too slow a burn for my tastes. In the latter part of the movie, however, things turn wild and shocking, although some of the elements seemed nonsensical at times
Overall, a mixed bag here for me, as the pace, as mentioned, was too slow for too long until it all gets wild and crazy. Plus, the ending here was too ambiguous for me. I might add the cinematography of the mountains was superb.
