Foreign Film & Discussion Series

Revanche

Please join former Drexel Professor Ramesh Kajaria on Sunday, February 27th at 2:00 pm to watch and discuss this award-winning, oscar-nominated film from Austria. In German w/English subtitles, 2008. Not rated. Registration not required. Oscar nominee for Best Foreign Language film in 2009.

In a ragged section of Vienna, hardened ex-con Alex (Johannes Krisch) works as an assistant in a brothel, where he falls for Ukrainian hooker Tamara (Irina Potapenko). They hope for escape, but their plans unexpectedly intersect with the lives of a rural cop (Andreas Lust) and his seemingly content wife (Ursula Strauss). Austrian Director Götz Spielmann’s Oscar-nominated drama is a tense, existential, and moving portrait of vengeance and redemption.
