A psychological film based on Marlen Haushofer's book The Wall from 1963, directed by Julian Pölsler.

A nameless woman sets out to visit her cousin and her husband at a cottage in a forest somewhere in the Austrian Alps. Shortly after her arrival, they leave to drive to a nearby village to take care of something, leaving her alone. Tired, she falls asleep on the couch, only to wake up in the middle of the night and find out they have yet to returne. She goes off to look for them and gradually finds out that the cottage and its vicinity are cut off from the outside world by an invisible wall, past which it seems all life has stopped.


The Wall by Marlen Haushofer has been a cult phenomenon in Austria since it was written, and has been translated into several dozen languages. In 2019 it was
finally also translated to Czech.

More than being a mysterious drama the film examines the mind and soul of a woman whose everyday struggle to survive comes to life on the pages of her diary.

This quiet, meditative drama reminds us that we are part of the natural world, which is stronger that we are, and has thus become a certain ecological call to arms for several generations.

Original: Marlen Haushofer, Die Wand, 1963
English: Marlen Haushofer, The Wall.

Movie version:
Germany, Austria, 2011, 108 minutes
Director: Julian Roman Pölsler

The unique production combines a physical theatre performance with live music and a film starring child actors of Farm in the Cave studio to communicate an urgent, yet widely overlooked, topic – the online radicalisation of youth.
