Soaked in dread, heavy on the atmospherics and with a production value of the highest caliber, his seventh feature film, 2008’s Revanche was one hell of a manner to introduce filmmaker Götz Spielmann to a vast number of cinephiles. We’re hoping for more of the same with this one.

Gist: Two sisters, very different. Their father, whose life is ending. A guesthouse in the mountains. A family history.

Release Date: Revanche was featured at the Berlin Film Fest, and while this won’t be ready in time for Cannes, I’m thinking it’ll be submitted to Venice
