Described as "a European Revenant" by Cineuropa, writer/director Felix Randau's Iceman was inspired by the discovery of 'Ötzi The Iceman,' the oldest known human mummy found in 1991, approximately 5300 years after his death.

Playing out in an unsubtitled ancient dialect, Iceman follows a tribesman (Juergen Vogel; The Wave) who seeks vengeance for the attack on his tribe which claimed the lives of his wife and son.

Susanne Wuest (Goodnight Mommy), André Hennicke (Downfall) and Franco Nero (Django) also star.

Iceman is in UK cinemas July 27th.

The official synopsis reads:

The Ötztal Alps, more than 5300 years ago. A Neolithic clan has settled nearby a creek. It is their leader Kelab’s 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. He sets out after the murderers on what turns into a grand odyssey where he must fight constantly – for the infant’s survival; against the immense forces of nature; against hunters he encounters; and, amongst the loneliness of the quest, against a growing sense of doubt over the morality of his mission.
