Re "Revanche" -- loved the movie, altho the chopping wood scenes were too long, too often; I prefer flicks wherein the ending is unpredictable, and wherein one learns something. About a brothel, a prostitute who's being pressured to svc only special men; about a love affair, a bank robbery, a death, a childless couple. Well done, plausible; the tale lingers. marie

Variety
In what's essentially a six-hander, the casting is aces. All actors turn in fine, naturalistic perfs, but it would be remiss not to remark on 83-year-old Thanheiser's profoundly moving turn as the grandfather. Full Review

The New York Times
The characters and situations are interesting enough, and the filmmaking is sufficiently skilled to provide a measure of reasonably thoughtful entertainment. Full Review

Wall Street Journal
Mr. Spielmann's film is full of surprises and, in its distinctive way, full of life. Full Review
Kenneth Turan
Los Angeles Times
A darkly compelling film from Austria, can be viewed as either a thriller with psychological overtones or a psychological drama with thriller elements. Full Review
