Julian Roman Pölslers spectacularly-shot, highly intelligent adaptation of Marlen Haushofers early 1960s bestseller
is riveting and emotionally involving from start to finish.
Gedecks performance, which must have been physically demanding in the extreme, is phenomenal.
Pölsler is a veteran TV director, but The Wall is intensly cinematic - a high risk, high-intelligence drama that will be intensely
rewarding for viewers willing to scale its rarefied but heady heights.
Jonathan Romney, Screen International
Throughout the beautifully suggested seasons, gedeck holds the screen wtith ease.

Martina Gedeck trägt diesen Film ganz allein, und sie trägt ihn gut.
