A Parisian family is disturbed by mysterious videotapes of their own house in their mail. A mindblowing mystery thriller from auteur director Michael Haneke. An intellectual film that cleverly plays on our perception of pace in cinema and involves the viewer in it’s entirety. Also compromises a view into French colonialism and it’s effects, a social commentary on such issues as societal responsibility, racism and immigration in France (and most of the Western world), class relations, and the impossibility of complete liberation from our past.
An interesting (an completely different) take on an idea seen in David Lynch’s classic Lost Highway (1997).
Keep in mind that this is a film not meant to merely entertain, at least not in the traditional manner. A completely different and novel type of movie that turns the viewer into a part of the story, and leaves us thinking – in other words, the Truth is “Hidden”.
A must-see masterpiece for anyone with a love for unconventional cinema, films that “think outside the box”.
Won three awards at the Cannes Film Festival, including Best Director, also nominated for the Palme D’Or.
