Summary: Based on Marlen Haushofer’s eponymous feminist classic novel, The Wall is a highly original exploration of solitude and survival set in a spectacularly beautiful Austrian mountain landscape. Martina Gedeck (The Lives Of Others) brings a rare and vivid intensity to her role as the unnamed lead character who inexplicably finds herself cut off from all human contact when an invisible, unyielding wall suddenly surrounds the countryside. Accompanied by her loyal dog Lynx, she becomes immersed in a world untouched by civilization and ruled by the laws of nature. A contemporary female Robinson Crusoe tale, The Wall is a mysterious, existential meditation that raises profound questions about humanity and our relationship to the natural world. [Music Box Films]
