Expert Review Revanche (2008) - Blu-Ray DVD Review
By: Luigi Bastardo Blogcritics.org Reviews
Published on: 3/2/2010 4:06 PM
Alex (Johannes Krisch) is little more than a low-level thug who lives and works in the seedy red-light district of a Viennese suburb. His Ukrainian-born girlfriend, Tamara (Irina Potapenko), is up to her pretty little neck in debt, and works as a prostitute. Both people are employed by a stout slimeball named Konecny (Hanno Poeschl), who allows his cash-paying clients to assault Tamara (as well as the other working girls), while taunting Alex for being “too soft” to do anything other than performing the most menial of tasks he gives him every step of the way....read the full review

Professional Reviews

A.V. Club
"REVANCHE is, first and foremost, a good story, craftily told....Speilmann conveys the movie's most important information with economical images and actions that gain in meaning as they accumulate." -- Grade: B 04/30/2009

Los Angeles Times
"[A] darkly compelling film....Its carefully plotted, convincing scenario will leave you with a lot on your mind." 05/08/2009

Washington Post
"[A] riveting, Oscar-nominated thriller....The uniformly crackerjack cast keeps things electric, yet always believable, even when behaving in ways that are shocking." 05/29/2009

Chicago Sun-Times
3.5 stars out of 4 -- "All of these actors create characters who are above all people, not performances. That's why the film is peculiarly effective; it's about their lives, not their dilemmas." 08/05/2009

Chicago Sun-Times
Included in Chicago Sun-Times's "The Best Foreign Films Of 2009" -- "A 2009 Oscar nominee." 12/27/2009

Empire
4 stars out of 5 --[I]t's a hypnotic, twisty-turny exercise in suspense -- the setting may be idyllic, but doom is never far away." 05/01/2010

Total Film
4 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he deliberate pacing lets us look deeper into these lives than most crime movies would trouble to do. REVANCHE is that rarest of things -- a thoughtful thriller." 04/19/2010

Sight and Sound
"[A] restrained, somewhat creepy tale of characters whose otherwise unremarkable lives are disrupted by a traumatic event..." 05/01/2010

Uncut
5 stars out of 5 -- "Mesmerising....Emotional, erotic and suspenseful..." 10/01/2010
