The Wall

Julian Roman Polsler





Official Fantàstic Competition

Trailer / Images:


A woman joins a couple that runs a refuge at the top of a mountain. At night, they head over to a pub located in a nearby valley. The following morning, when she realizes they haven’t returned, the woman goes out to look for them. This is when she discovers that there is an invisible wall separating her from the rest of the world. With just a dog, a cat and a cow as her only company, she will start to write a diary to leave a record of her situation, her thoughts and her fears. Julian Roman Pölsler adapts Marlen Haushofer’s bestseller, faithful to the essence of a work that reflects on our relationship with those essential elements that surround us.
