Revanche (2008)

Directed by
Götz Spielmann

A happily married couple become unlikely friends with a man whose life has been marked by chaos and violence in Austrian filmmaker Gotz Spielmann’s Oscar-nominated thriller.

In a desperate attempt to improve life for his prostitute girlfriend, Tamara (Irina Potapenko), ex-con Alex (Johannes Krisch) returns to a life of crime and robs a bank. As he waits for the heat to subside, he hides out on a farm owned by his grandfather and befriends his neighbour Susanne (Ursula Strauss) and her husband Robert (Andreas Lust), who he is startled to discover is a member of the local police force.

Revanche has received critical acclaim across the world since it premiered at the Berlin International Film Festival in February 2008 and was nominated for the 2009 Academy Award for Best Foreign Language
