HAPPY END (2017)

2018 Oscar Selection, Austria

Michael Haneke inventively contrasts bourgeois decrepitude with the ongoing European refugee crisis flowing through Calais, France. Isabelle Huppert runs her family's construction empire, having taken over from her father Jean-Louis Trintignant. A construction accident caused by her son, Franz Rogowski, threatens a civil suit just as Huppert and her lawyer/paramour Toby Jones are embarking on an ambitious new deal. Meanwhile, her ne'er-do-well brother Mathieu Kassovitz has taken in his estranged 12-year-old daughter. "As gripping as a satanically inspired soap opera, a dynasty of lost souls. The movie rehearses Haneke's classic themes and visual ideas: family dysfunction, intergenerational revenge, the poisonous suppression of guilt and the return of the repressed. " – The Guardian. DIR/SCR Michael Haneke; PROD Margaret Ménégoz. France/Austria/Germany, 2017, color, 107 min. In French with English subtitles. NOT RATED
