Dir. Michael Haneke

Austria 1994 | Colour | 95 mins | Cert 12 | Drama

Cast: Gabriel Cosmin Urdes, Lukas Miko, Otto Grünmandl

Haneke’s articulate critique of the isolating effects of western society, the media and television in particular, is composed of an intricate series of unrelated scenes, culminating in an apparently motiveless act of violence. Perfectly paced and executed, Haneke’s skilful weaving of these tableaux into a coherent and compelling whole is mesmerising and strangely beautiful.
