Iceman

by Felix Randau

They found a man, but not his story.

The Ötztal Alps, more than 5300 years ago. A Neolithic clan has settled nearby a creek. It is their leader Kelab's (JÜRGEN VOGEL) responsibility to be the keeper of the group's holy shrine Tineka. While Kelab is hunting, the settlement is attacked. The members of the tribe are brutally murdered, amongst them Kelab's wife and son, only one newborn survives... and Tineka is gone! Blinded by pain and fury, Kelab is out for one thing alone – vengeance! The pursuit of the murderers is shaping up to be quite an odyssey for Kelab. He fights for the infant's survival and against the forces of nature. And a fatal error even turns Kelab from hunter to hunted. On top of all that, the loneliness causes Kelab to doubt his actions more and more. When Kelab finally faces the murderers of his clan, his greatest challenge will be not to become a victimizer himself…

Press Quotes

“Spectacular locations and pure storytelling … There has not really been anything quite like it in the years since a PATHFINDER
1987

or an ATARANJUAT, THE FAST RUNNER
2001

, suggesting that novelty value alone could earn it attention and a commercial life.”
SCREENDAILY

„The actor's physical presence is impressive and he's compelling even if we never understand a word he says — not that Otzi's much of a talker to begin with.“ “High-octane entertainment … cleverly plays with audience expectations.”
THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER

„A rare cinematic experience. Not to be missed!“
