06 May 2016

On Friday 6 May 2016 at 7.00 PM we are showing the film "Revanche" (Whose fault is it if life doesn't go your way) at Das Zentrum, Australian-German Institute Inc. in the Griffin Centre, Genge Street, Civic. Genres: Thriller / Drama, Laufzeit: 117 Mins, Jahr 2010. Director: Götz Spielmann Rated: MA 15 + Fit for viewing by persons aged 15 years or more. The film is in German and has English subtitles. About the film: A gripping thriller and a tragic drama of nearly Greek proportions, REVANCHE is the stunning, Oscar-nominated international breakthrough of Austrian filmmaker Goetz 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.
