62', HDCAM, DE 2013
An ageing hippie couple endures an isolated, ghostly existence in an old country house. A boy wanders aimlessly through a forest, building a lair for himself. And a story about a never-ending escape from catastrophe.
THE REVENANTS - a film about desire, loss, and endlessly returning. A ghost story.

THE REVENANTS is at the same time: a melancholic ghost and family film, a maximally abstract science fiction apocalyptic thriller, a visual essay on the harsh dreariness of Northern Germany. In any case: one of the the most fascinating films of the festival, a film that, at least momentarily, unfolds a dazzling beauty in individual shots. Lukas Foerster, Perlentaucher
What was that, this strange but crazy and beautiful creature of a film?
Rüdiger Tomczak, shomingekiblog
Mysterious objects in Northern German mixed woodlands: Andreas Bolm's THE REVENANTS in the Perspektive deutsches Kino, Berlinale. Crude, courageous, worth seeing.
