Proof Haneke remains one of modern cinema’s true visionaries.
Director: Michael Haneke
Cast includes: Isabelle Huppert, Toby Jones
107 Mins / 2017 / France, Subtitles
Master auteur Michael Haneke returns with a biting satire on bourgeois family values set in the shadow of the European refugee crisis. Featuring a cast of top acting talent, including Isabelle Huppert and Toby Jones, it’s a piercing, dark comedy on the blind preoccupations of middle-class angst.
Nominated for the Palme d’Or at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival, Happy End bears all the hallmarks of Haneke’s uniquely stark and unsympathetic style. Pairing pitch-black humour with chillingly precise direction, it's proof if we ever needed it that he remains one of modern cinema’s true visionaries.
