Shortly before the onset of winter, a quiet stranger arrives in a remote Austrian mountain valley, whose community is united by a dark secret. Andreas Prochaska’s alpine Western deals with a quest for truth, which leads to a (bloody) reconciliation with the past – leaving a red trail in the once pristine white of the mountain snow. A visually stunning feat of the genre: star-studded, brilliantly directed and merciless. www.dasfinsteretal-derfilm.at, www.filmladen.at,
