Iceman Trailer

"They found a man, but not his story…" A trailer has debuted for a film titled Iceman, which is premiering at the Locarno Film Festival in Switzerland kicking off this week. This film could be described as an ancient Neolithic man version of The Revenant, about one man who angrily seeks revenge but must first survive the brutal Ötztals Alps. Jürgen Vogel stars as Kelab, with the full cast including Susanne Wuest, André Hennicke, Violetta Schurawlow, Sabin Tambrea, Martin Schneider, and an appearance by Franco Nero. The film uses an early version of the Rhaetic language. This actually looks damn good, with some impressive hair + beards and an intense story set entirely in the wilderness. I'm intrigued enough to watch.

Here's the first official trailer (+ German poster) for Felix Randau's Iceman, direct from YouTube:

Iceman Poster

5000 years ago: A man lives with his woman and their children in the Ötztals Alps. Coming back to his hut after hunting one day, he finds his family murdered, the shed burned down and a holy amulet stolen. Full of rage, he decides to challenge the freezing mountains to find the killer of his family. Surrounded only by ice, he marches on for days, crying out for revenge. Iceman is written and directed by German filmmaker Felix Randau, of the films Northern Star and The Calling Game previously. The film is premiering at the Locarno Film Festival this month. After the festival, the film is set to open in Germany later this November, but doesn't have a distributor or official US release plans in place yet. Stay tuned. What do you think of this?

Actually like the look of this.

Franco Nero is the legend and this looks good. However, I wonder whether the whole thing could be interesting. Filling the gap from ancient history which probably was much different than this, which is quite romantic, by the way. People were much more communal and tribal at those times and it was common knowledge among them that they all should keep together. There were, obviously, good reasons for that ...

Well explained, but still a impressing trailer...

Well, this is just for fun and therefore another good product from film industry. Nothing much better there, though ...

I was hoping this was a movie about Val Kilmer's character from Top Gun....

Interesting. I am curious to see what they've envisioned for the culture of the people. Hope it gets a US release or at least digital release sooner than later.

I can't...I can't tell them apart in the trailer. All I see is fur and beards. Looks interesting though. Also, I kind of hope there's no subtitles, as you can still "understand" the language through acting.
