Synopsis

In a ragged section of Vienna, hardened ex-con Alex works in a brothel, where he falls for Ukrainian sex worker 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.

Our take

Austrian filmmaker Götz Spielmann scored an Oscar® nomination for Best Foreign Language Film for this simmering revenge thriller. A lovers-on-the-lam tale that kicks off with a catastrophic bank robbery, Revanche smartly eschews genre cliché for a thoughtfully open-ended social and moral enquiry.
