Synopsis

A woman finds herself cut off from human contact when an invisible wall inexplicably surrounds the countryside where she is vacationing. Accompanied by her dog, she becomes immersed in a world untouched by civilization and ruled by the laws of nature, beginning an inward journey of spiritual growth.

Our take

Shot on location in the Austrian Alps, this stunning adaptation of Marlen Haushofer’s influential 1962 novel features a tour de force performance from Martina Gedeck. Incorporating the source text through voiceover, Julian Pölsler’s film poses provocative questions about what it means to be human.
