All Georg wanted to do was take his wife and son to their gated country house for a relaxing vacation. But in writer-director Michael Haneke’s deceptive moral universe, personality flaws and bourgeois notions of security are like the sexual curiosity of teenagers in slasher movies—they ensure the characters get punished. Two backhandedly obsequious young men turn up uninvited, wearing white gloves that are only slightly dirty by the time they finish teaching the family—and us—a lesson. Some writers have described this 1997 movie by saying all the violence takes place offscreen, and it’s true that we see only the aftermath of the really bloody stuff. But to suggest that what’s depicted on-screen isn’t violence is grossly inaccurate. In French and German with subtitles.
