“It is not a new direction for this film-maker, admittedly, but an existing direction pursued with the same dazzling inspiration as ever.”~Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian

Aroview: Michael Haneke lends his impeccably chilly style to this blackest of comedies about the disintegration of family relationships amidst the enduring French class divide. The plot follows a powerful construction dynasty, with Jean-Louis Trintignant as a failing patriarch and Isabelle Huppert as his daughter (roles they also played together in Haneke's AMOUR).
