Revanche: The Criterion Collection

A gripping thriller and a tragic drama of nearly Greek proportions,

Revanche is the stunning, Oscar-nominated international

breakthrough of Austrian filmmaker Gotz Spielmann. In a ragged

section of Vienna, hardened ex-con Alex (the mesmerizing

Johannes Krisch) works as an assistant 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. With meticulous, elegant direction,

Spielmann creates a tense, existential, and surprising portrait of

vengeance and redemption, and a journey into the darkest forest of

human nature, in which violence and beauty exist side by side.
