Vienna, Austria. Alex (Johannes Krisch), an ex-con, has fallen in love with Tamara (Irina Potapenko, Prinzessin), a Ukrainian prostitute. Tamara lives in a rundown hotel, not too far away from the brothel where she works. Alex also works in the brothel as a bouncer, and occasionally gives Tamara a ride home. The two rarely talk about her job; they prefer to make love. Raw and thought-provoking, Gotz Spielmann's Revanche is a film that impressed me a lot. As expected, Criterion's treatment is fantastic, and I cannot wait to see what other films we would see via their partnership with IFC Films. VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
