The Wall (Die Wand) by Julian Roman Pölsler (Austria, 2012, 108 min.). Martina Gedeck, star of the Academy Award-winning film The Lives Of Others, brings intensity to this mysterious and riveting tale of survival. Gedeck stars as an unnamed character who suddenly finds herself cut off from human contact when an invisible, unyielding wall inexplicably surrounds the countryside. The Wall is a gorgeous, mesmerizing adventure film that raises profound questions about humanity, solitude, and our relationship to the natural world. “Riveting and emotionally involving from start to finish” (Screen International).
