Toronto International Film Festival • Drama
Academy Award-winner Gotz Spielman (Revanche) weaves this provocative tale of three troubled couples whose lives are connected by a lattice of coincidence, love and lies. A married nurse has a wild affair with a strange doctor; a cashier tries devious means to keep her cheating boyfriend in check; a recently divorced woman must contend with the return of her abusive husband. Antares features explicit sexual content and mature themes in portraying these modern relationships.
“Brilliantly acted and directed” (Time Out Chicago), ANTARES was nominated for Best Film at the Locarno International Film Festival and was Austria’s Official Oscar Submission in 2004.
DIRECTED BY GÖTZ SPIELMANN
