The Dark Valley

Wednesday, May 6, at 6:30 pm
Location: Upstairs Screening Room, Movies at Midway, map
Admission: No Admission Charge.

Somewhere high in the Alps, a lone rider makes his way along a hidden path and reaches a small village. Raised in America but fluent in German, this stranger goes by the name of Greider. He’s returning to his maternal homeland to photograph the landscape and the locals, but in reality he has vengeance on his mind. The village is ruled by old man Brenner and his six sons who’ve imposed a feudal rule over the townspeople for decades. In this valley a wedding comes with a terrible tradition and whoever opposes that will be subject to an awful punishment. One day a tragic accident befalls one of Brenner’s sons. When another son is mysteriously killed, it’s clear this is no coincidence. It’s time for the Brenner family to pay and Greider plans to settle a score long forgotten by everyone but him. Magnificently photographed with breathtaking scenery, this gripping Western was selected as the Austrian entry for the Best Foreign Language Film at the 87th Academy Awards®. Stephen Dalton of The Hollywood Reporter says, “Visually ravishing! The hills are alive with the sound of gunfire in this alpine revenge drama, a superior genre piece.” [2014, Austria & Germany, Runtime: 114 min, Not Rated, German with English subtitles]
