The Wall

Roman Polsler, Julian
Genre: 
Martina Gedeck, star of the Academy Award-winning film The Lives Of Others, brings a vivid intensity to this mysterious and riveting tale of survival set in a spectacularly beautiful Austrian mountain landscape. In a tour-de-force performance, Gedeck stars as an unnamed character who suddenly finds herself cut off from all human contact when an invisible, unyielding wall inexplicably surrounds the countryside where she is vacationing. Accompanied by her loyal dog Lynx, she becomes immersed in a world untouched by civilization and ruled by the laws of nature. As she grapples with her bizarre circumstances, she begins an inward journey of spiritual growth and transcendence. Based on Marlen Haushofer's eponymous classic novel, The Wall is a gorgeous, mesmerizing adventure film that raises profound questions about humanity, solitude, and our relationship to the natural world. Winner! Prize of the Ecumenical Jury, Berlin International Film Festival 2012 Riveting and emotionally involving from start to finish. Intensely cinematic. Gedeck's performance is phenomenal. - Jonathan Romney, Screen International Julian Roman Poelsler imbues his widescreen adaptation of the Marlen Haushofer novel with a certain visual majesty. - Boyd van Hoeij, Variety
