usual michael haneke here. in this one he proves once and for all that europeans are fucking crazy. it has his signature dead pan style. he doesn’t mind leaving the camera still when others might cut or move. it also has an abrupt, odd ending which is similar to some of his other work. like both versions of funny games the opening credits feature abrupt music. in funny games it was a heavy metal soundtrack during the credits which come in suddenly. here it’s classical piano interrupted by the cast/crew members’ names. not for everyone, but haneke overall can be described in that way.
