Reviews

“Showing that there is both rhyme and madness to seemingly unfragmented everyday life, screenwriter-director Michael Haneke has created a pointillistic portrait of terror, presenting a number of tiny, mundane incidents that eventually enable us to connect the dots.”
– Duane Byrge, The Hollywood Reporter  

“An icy-cool study of violence both mediated and horribly real.”
– Manohla Dargis, The New York Times
