Revanche Reviews

Nicolas Rapold
Film Comment Magazine

"It works because Spielmann has established that we're not watching belabored dramatic trajectories collide, but an encounter between two people in miles-away mindsets."

Ozus' World Movie Reviews

Impressive noir film that befits Greek tragedy as it travels deep into sublime territory.

Austria's nominee for the Best Foreign Language Oscar is a precise and effective psychological thriler

Eye for Film

Here justice moves slowly, and in mysterious ways - and Spielmann's final reckoning of accounts, though unexpected, is subtly satisfying.

This is London

Gotz Speilmann's film is well-made, aptly characterised and seems frighteningly true to life.

Shadows on the Wall

More character study than thriller (the title means "revenge"), this slow-burning Austrian film effectively holds our interest with its unpredictable plot, even though it's not easy to care where it's going.

Total Film

Revanche (French for 'revenge') is that rarest of things -- a thoughtful thriller.

May 6, 2010

It unfurls at a slow, measured pace, and director Götz Spielmann uses the plot's Noir-esque trappings as a jumping-off point for an absorbing morality tale about the way life never turns out as planned. It's bleak, but in a good way.

Movie Metropolis

A modern fable which draws broad parallels and depicts profound moral quandaries with an elegance and frankness rare in cinema.

Peter Bradshaw
Guardian

It has a distinctive sort of Euro-hardcore sheen, mainly due to the superbly lucid, diamond-hard cinematography from Martin Gschlacht.

David Edwards
Daily Mirror [UK]

It's a slow-burning Austrian thriller with no stars, no special effects and, by the looks of it, almost no budget. But sometimes a little goes a long way.

Lee Griffiths
Little White Lies

Aided by a terrific performance from Krisch and an exceptional ensemble cast, Revanche is a beautifully crafted psychological thriller that should firmly place Götz Spielmann on the world cinema map.

| Original Score: 4/5

Daily Telegraph

The film exerts a steady grip without charging head-first into thriller territory: there's a cool, cosmic irony to the way fate wheels around.

As good a thriller as you'll see this year.

Leo Robson
Financial Times

Tauntingly slow but hauntingly shot (and edited with crisp abruptness), it was a deserving nominee for Best Foreign Film at last year's Oscars.

David Parkinson
Radio Times

This riveting study of desire, isolation, guilt and redemption bears the influence of both Robert Bresson and Michael Haneke, and proves surprisingly optimistic in its assessment of human weakness.

Elliott Noble
Sky Movies

From pacing and composition to its frank attitude to sex and wonderfully open performances, the film is a largely pretension-free zone. A fine lesson in the art of storytelling.

It's a truly refreshing movie that justly received an Oscar nomination for Best Foreign Language Film.

Bright Lights Film Journal

The film's first half uses a restrained style to build interest, while the latter, as clever in its construction as it is human, elevates the characters of this potential potboiler.
