Based on Marlen Haushofer's eponymous feminist classic novel, THE WALL is a highly original exploration of the experience of solitude and survival set in a spectacularly beautiful Austrian mountain landscape. Martina Gedeck, the brilliant interpreter of the Oscar-winning The Lives Of Others, brings a rare and vivid intensity to her role as the unnamed lead character in this contemporary female Robinson Crusoe tale.
