Overview

Chronicling – subtly and without sensationalism – a series of acts of appalling cruelty perpetrated in a German village prior to World War One, Michael Haneke's Cannes prizewinner is an incisive study of the oppressively strict social conditions that would give rise to National Socialism. Superb casting, magnificent black and white camerawork and a brilliant script make for a masterpiece
