Description


The 2012 adaptation of this classic dystopian novel is directed by Julian Roman Polsler and stars internationally renowned actress Martina Gedeck.

I can allow myself to write the truth; all the people for whom I have lied throughout my life are dead... writes the heroine of Marlen Haushofer's The Wall, a quite ordinary, unnamed middle-aged woman who awakens to find she is the last living human being. Surmising her solitude is the result of a military experiment gone awry, she begins the terrifying work of not only survival but also self-renewal. The Wall is at once a simple and moving journal-with talk of potatoes and beans, of hoping for a calf, of counting matches, of forgetting the taste of sugar and the use of one's name-and a disturbing meditation on twentieth-century history.
