Friday, May 1 - Tuesday, May 26, 2009

Final week! At once a gripping thriller and a tragic drama of nearly Greek proportions, REVANCHE is the stunning, Oscar-nominated, international breakthrough from Austria’s Götz Spielmann. In a ragged section of Vienna, a hardened ex-con works as an assistant in a brothel, where he falls for a Ukrainian hooker. 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.
