‘Revanche’ coming to the Orpheum

Austrian director Götz Spielmann’s highly acclaimed 2008 crime drama Revanche is returning to Madison this Friday, beginning a run at the Orpheum (on State St., for those who don’t know). Revanche played last spring in the Wisconsin Film Festival, where it generated a considerable amount of buzz (and screened, if I’m not mistaken, at the Orpheum). I personally missed out on seeing Revanche then, so I’m surprised and extraordinarily pleased to learn of its imminent return. For good measure, here’s what Ebert, A.O. Scott and Scott Foundas thought of the film (warning: it’s all praise). Madison audiences actually being granted the opportunity to see contemporary international releases? Whodathunkit.
