Movie Info

The Ötztal Alps, more than 5300 years ago. A Neolithic clan has settled nearby a creek. It is their leader Kelab's responsibility to be the keeper of the group's holy shrine Tineka. While Kelab is hunting, the settlement is attacked. The members of the tribe are brutally murdered, amongst them Kelab's wife and son, only one newborn survives and Tineka is gone. Blinded by pain and fury, Kelab is out for one thing alone vengeance. He sets out after the murderers on what turns into a grand odyssey where he must fight constantly for the infant's survival; against the immense forces of nature; against hunters he encounters; and, amongst the loneliness of the quest, against a growing sense of doubt over the morality of his mission.

Basically a visceral thrill ride through the Alpine Copper Age ...

August 14, 2017 | Full Review…

Its beats are blunt, but the action scenes are all well-staged and often impressively gruesome.

August 14, 2017 | Full Review…

The violence on display throughout the film certainly proves compelling, though it is thematically slight.

July 31, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

The tone flits between revenge thriller and against-the-elements survival movie, but commits to neither.

July 29, 2018 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

It's a reasonably engaging movie, but based on very familiar filmic archetypes.

July 27, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Wide mountain vistas and claims of painstaking authenticity fail to disguise the dopey genre underpinnings of this overfamiliar rape-and-revenge drama.
