Inspired by an impassioned exchange of views in the film magazine Revolver, Dreileben ('Three Lives') is a trio of interlocking tales by three of Germany's leading filmmakers. Each director works from the same basic premise of a convicted murderer and sex offender who has escaped from a hospital. Director Christoph Hochhäusler cuts to the chase as escaped killer Frank hides in the woods and a detective starts to question the evidence in the case against him. The thrill of the manhunt is contrasted with a more brooding, troubling sense of mystery as dots are joined and lives are changed. Part of Glasgow Film Festival 2012: Welcome to Germany.
