Revanche Is Coming

Apr 22, 2009

Mark your calendars: Janus Films and the Criterion Collection’s theatrical release Revanche opens next Friday, May 1, in New York, Seattle, and Boston, and the early press is awesome. Götz Spielmann got a rave for his tense, thrilling drama from no less an authority than auteurist kingmaker and legendary critic Andrew Sarris, who said in the New York Observer: “From the moral and emotional intensity expressed so eloquently in Revanche, Mr. Spielmann seems to be an auteur of the first rank, worthy of serious study now and in the future.” Revanche will be making its way around the country through July, so look for it in a theater near you.
