    Revanche was mesmerizing, gritty, real. No false steps, no wasted scenes, a work of art. The only curiosity was no subtitles, at first, for some of the dialogue. The protagonist is a criminal, accessory to murder, yet very human and sympathetic. Highly enjoyable film for most.

    From the film's opening moments you won't be able to guess where the whole thing ultimately ends up and that's one of the many endearing qualities of Revanche.

    Hard luck conspires with bad sex in this unspectacular Austrian tale of crime and punishment.

    In what's essentially a six-hander, the casting is aces. All actors turn in fine, naturalistic perfs, but it would be remiss not to remark on 83-year-old Thanheiser's profoundly moving turn as the grandfather.
