"A profound revelation."—Cinema Scope

Nominated for Best Foreign Language Film at this year's Oscars, the Austrian film Revanche elevates the crime drama and revenge thriller genres through masterful filmmaking and expert storytelling. A prostitute and her boss's errand boy decide to escape their red-light-district lives by robbing a bank in a remote village. The ensuing events alter everyone's lives and push the narrative into difficult moral terrain and larger existential questions. Although director Götz Spielmann is highly regarded in Europe and often compared to his countryman Michael Haneke, this is his first film to be released in North America. (121 mins., 35mm)
