They say that dogs are man (or woman's) best friend, and indeed, their loyalty is just one of the traits that makes those four-legged friends so endearing. Frankly, if we were cut off from civilization, we might actually prefer a dog to be on our side than anybody on two legs. And that basic, intriguing premise is at the heart of "The Wall" from director Julian Pölsler, and led by "The Lives Of Others" star Martina Gedeck.

They say that dogs are man (or woman's) best friend, and indeed, their loyalty is just one of the traits that makes those four-legged friends so endearing. Frankly, if we were cut off from civilization, we might actually prefer a dog to be on our side than anybody on two legs. And that basic, intriguing premise is at the heart of "The Wall" from director Julian Pölsler, and led by "The Lives Of Others" star Martina Gedeck.

Based on Marlen Haushofer’s classic novel, the actress leads the eerie movie, set in the Austrian mountains, where her unnamed character suddenly finds herself cut off from all human contact by an invisible, unyielding wall that surrounds the countryside where she is vacationing. Accompanied by her dog Lynx, she must now come to grips with her bizarre circumstances, in a film that that tackles spirituality, humanity, solitude, and more. And in this exclusive clip from the film, we see that moment when the woman and Lynx discover the wall for the first time.

Winner of Ecumenical Jury Prize at the 2012 Berlin Film Festival, "The Wall" opens in New York City on Friday, May 31st and rolls out across the country this summer. Check to see when it comes near you right here.
