Berlinale 2012: THE WALL acclaimed by the international press


Julian Roman Pölsler’s spectacularly-shot, highly intelligent adaptation of Marlen Haushofer’s early 1960s bestseller is riveting and emotionally involving from start to finish.

Gedeck’s 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.

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