"An extraordinary film, mythic in feeling." - Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle
"A darkly compelling film from Austria, can be viewed as either a thriller with psychological overtones or a psychological drama with thriller elements." - Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times
"Revanche involves a rare coming together of a male's criminal nature and a female's deep needs, entwined with a first-rate thriller. It is also perceptive in observing characters, including a proud old man. Rare is the thriller that is more about the reasons of people instead of the needs of the plot." - Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
At once a gripping thriller and a tragic drama of nearly Greek proportions, "Revanche" is the stunning, Oscar--nominated, international breakthrough film from Austrian filmmaker Götz Spielmann. In a ragged section of Vienna, hardened ex-con Alex works as an assistant in a brothel, where he falls for Ukrainian hooker Tamara. Their desperate plans for escape unexpectedly intersect with the lives of a rural cop and his seemingly content wife. With meticulous, elegant direction, Spielmann creates a tense, existential, and surprising portrait of vengeance and redemption, and a journey into the darkest forest of human nature, in which violence and beauty exist side by side.
