Wondering why times are missing?


Austrian mad genius Michael Haneke (Funny Games, Code Unknown, The Piano Teacher) contributes another scathing, twist-laden thriller. In this one, a married couple (Daniel Auteuil, Juliette Binoche) are terrorized by a series of videotapes planted on their front porch. At first, the tapes appear meaningless, but as time goes on, they get more and more personal. The film throws in some heavy political and racial elements, but none are crucial to understanding this visceral drama. Haneke is one cruel bastard, prone to playing manipulative jokes on his characters as well as his audience. Although Caché occasionally pulls the rug out from under viewers, it is one of Haneke's most accessible works to date. In French with English subtitles. 121 minutes R.
