A coolly observed study of familial dysfunction, Michael Haneke’s follow-up to Amour (IFI French Film Festival 2012) has all of the stylistic traits we have come to expect: the cut-glass precision, scenes shot to resemble static surveillance footage, significant action taking place in the margins of long shots, and the presence of Isabelle Huppert. Thematically the film revisits Haneke’s concerns with bourgeois complacency and guilt, racial prejudice and our changing relationship to technology. Moments of comedy introduce a surprising and welcome new element to the director’s winning formula. (Notes by David O’Mahony)
Director’s note: Reuniting with Trintignant and Huppert, Haneke’s fascinating and tactical plot builds with frightening precision.
