Under the most ironic of the titles of Haneke's hides is one of the most intriguing films of this creator, as sharp as the look of Jean-Louis Trintignant. On the one hand there is an overview of the iconic themes that appear in the Austrian cinema (intergenerational conflict, terrible burghers, dysfunctional families, violence, whose victims appear at the least expected moment, old age, the power of technology). On the other hand, it is a brutal diagnosis made in Europe (in a way, admit, shocking, but also funny). It's also the electrifying screen meeting of Haneke's stars: Isabelle Huppert plays the rich family's head, while Jean-Louis Trintignant plans her suicide father. Living in Calais (let's say it's a town that has become a symbol of refugee crisis), the Burmese family is encountering a series of catastrophes within a few days, leading the Laurent to a collapse. In the same direction is undoubtedly dysfunctional, devoid of empathy and vitality West. What do you mean happy end?
