The Dark Valley

Greider, a lone traveler, arrives in a small village in the Alps. Initially, no one wants him to stay, especially Brenner, who keeps the community under tight control with his threatening ways. But a few gold coins sway the townsfolk, and they opt to shelter Greider for the winter. Soon a tragic accident leads to the death of one of Brenner’s beloved sons. But when a second son is mysteriously killed, it seems evident that more than coincidence is at play. “The hills are alive with the sound of gunfire in this alpine revenge drama, a superior genre piece which applies classic western tropes to a remote Austrian mountain village.”—The Hollywood Reporter. This year’s Austrian submission for the Best Foreign Language Film Oscar.
