Audience Reviews for Revanche

  • Apr 20, 2014
    A gorgeous, sentimental, and somewhat existentialist drama about revenge, forgiveness, love, and devotion. Shot in mostly long, static shots without any musical score, Revanche is a film that will absorb and envelope you into its world, staying with you long after the credits have rolled.

    Excellent film, the only thing out place is the amount of breasts shown. It wasn't off-putting, but I question if it was there for shock value or if it had some symbolic/expositional purpose. Other than that, everything else is truly well done. The script is great and halfway through the film I wondered if it was too theatrical/outlandish. But Spielmann's execution and pacing makes it all work amazingly well. The performances are also great in the film, Krisch is phenomenal as Alex. This is one of the best recently released films that I've seen.

    This film starts out with a pretty interesting story and then just takes such a sharp turn. Every character has a problem, every character is well developed. This movie had me caring deeply for three people at once, which is something I can say I rarely feel in movies. In fact, by the end of the movie I felt that I went on the same emotional journey that Alex did. That's how good of a story Revanche tells.

    Artfully directed and brilliantly acted, this is an amazing debut for Spielmann! Revanche shows people in realistic problems and circumstances and how they deal with and overcome them. The countryside is beautiful and has a stark contrast to that of the city. It's as if the nature and beauty observed represents the peace that Alex finally gains when he comes to terms with everything that has happened. We are left hopeful at the end of such a painful and hard journey. Highly Recommended!
