Synopsis

In a ragged section of Vienna, hardened ex-con Alex works 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, leading to acts of vengeance and redemption.

MUBI's take

The breakthrough film from Austrian filmmaker Götz Spielmann, Revanche is a powerful meditation on death and redemption set in the remote landscapes of the Austrian countryside. Nominated for Best Foreign Film at the 2009 Academy Awards.
