The Dark Valley
Directed by Andreas Prochaska
A lone rider arrives in a small high mountain village; nobody knows where he’s from and nobody wants him there. Greider introduces himself as a photographer from America, and the town’s patriarch, Old Brenner, provides him with shelter for the harsh winter ahead. Cut off by snowfall and barely a ray of sunlight reaching the valley, a tragic accident in the village leads to the death of one of Brenner’s beloved sons. When another son is mysteriously killed, it’s clear this is not a coincidence: the time has come for Brenner’s family to pay, and Greider plans to settle a score long forgotten by everyone but him.
A mysterious stranger arrives in a snow capped Austrian mountain village claiming to be a travelling photographer from America, yet is in fact an embittered gunfighter on a mission of vengeance.
Cast: Sam Riley, Paula Beer , Tobias Moretti
Well acted, beautiful cinematography. There were times I wanted to walk right into the movie just to better admire the surroundings. Oh, and I guess I learned a bit about ol' timey logging from those days.
Definitely one of those hidden gems that you happened to stubble upon while sifting through piles of dirt. Worth the dig!
Really glad I stumbled upon this while watching ShudderTV. Completely worth the watch.
