Film of the week


Revanche, by Gotz Spielmann (2008). No spoilers for this one. You will fall deeply in love with every single person in this movie. The story shifts in unexpected ways and yet the characters are never less than utterly compelling. I have never seen tension and intensity this tightly controlled. It seems at times that Spielmann is even able to bend the wind to his will.
