THE WALL is Austria's Oscar nomination

Julian Roman Pölsler's adaptation of Marlen Haushofer's mysterious and riveting novel The Wall was selected as Austria's entry for the Foreign Language Award race.
"Pölsler's bewitching debut manages to be at once a creepy sci-fi parable, a feminist Robinson Crusoe and a clear-eyed ode to the wonders of nature experienced in solitude" (The Guardian)
