There are few films that deliver on the strength of visuals alone, but the Austrian thriller Autumn Blood (2011) is one of them. It was released only last year in the U.S., and to a surprisingly poor reception. It’s about a teenager (played by Sophie Lowe) and her younger brother (Maximilian Harnisch) who live in the Tyrol mountains, and when their mother unexpectedly dies they are assaulted by three men from the town below. The story itself is rather simple and archetypal, but the style is extraordinary. There is very little dialogue, and the microcosm of the untouched mountainside is breathtaking. Think The Sound of Music meets Straw Dogs. Here are some images.
