A film by Julian Roman Pölsler
Starring Martina Gedeck
Martina Gedeck stars as a woman who suddenly finds herself isolated in the Austrian mountains, cut off from the rest of the world and forced to survive on her own.
Based on Marlen Haushofer’s eponymous feminist classic novel, The Wall is a highly original exploration of the experience of solitude and survival set in a spectacularly beautiful Austrian mountain landscape. Martina Gedeck, the brilliant interpreter of the Oscar-winning The Lives Of Others, brings a rare and vivid intensity to her role as the unnamed lead character in this contemporary female Robinson Crusoe tale.
A tale of a femme Robinson Crusoe …The Wall reps another showcase for the mesmerizing face of thesp Martina Gedeck. Julian Roman Poelsler imbues his widescreen adaptation of the Marlen Haushofer novel with a certain visual majesty.
