Trivia

2012 Guide Analysis: "After his last three films ("Cache," the "Funny Games" remake, "The White Ribbon") scored both awards and a lot of recognition overseas, Austrian director Michael Haneke returns with this €7.3 million French/German co-production that'll no doubt be bleak and uncompromising like the rest of his work. Reuniting Haneke with his "The Piano Teacher" and "Time of the Wolf" star Isabelle Huppert, many are expecting a prestigious debut in competition at Cannes in May."
