One of the best movies ever made

To be honest, I'm usually not really a fan of psychopath/serial killer movies. I mean, some of them are sometimes quite entertaining but they are never really great, at least, that’s my opinion but this movie is the exception. Indeed, I thought was so thoughtful , complex and really spellbinding to watch. I saw it again not so long ago and once again, it completely blew my mind. One thing I fou... read more

Michael Haneke once stated that the intention behind 'Funny Games' was that, if you couldn't watch it all the way through, then you didn't need to.

I'm not sure about that. I don't think I like the idea that a film director knows better than I do what I need to watch, or what I don't need to watch. I did watch 'Funny Games' all the way through, and it's a movie about two guys who to... read more

Irritating and Unwatchable.

Let me be honest here, i'm not familiar with the director, but if this is what he usually do? then i will never watch another movie of him.

The story goes like this: two guys enters a family vacations home, kill their dog, kick the father on the leg, so he can't walk and start asking some stupid question just to irritate the viewer, the two guys look very normal and polite, they use... read more

Description: Georg and Anna, and their son Georgie, are traveling to their lakeside summer home. Upon arrival, Georg and Georgie head off to the lake for sailing while Anna prepares dinner in the kitchen.

It soon becomes clear the pair has no intention of leaving. When Georg returns and tries to throw them out, physical violence erupts, and the family is held captive. What ensues are highly disturbing and violent games that are initiated by Paul and Peter with Georg, Ann ... (more)

“So I have seen the remake and I thought it was pretty damn good. So I had to see if the source material was even better or what. Supposedly the direct”

BAMF posted a review 1 month, 2 weeks ago

“So I have seen the remake and I thought it was pretty damn good. So I had to see if the source material was even better or what. Supposedly the director didn't intend for this to be successful or even a horror movie. It's another one of those films that is known for controversy which is always amusing to me. Yeah I see why some of them end up that, but for some it's like just get over it. Michael Haneke also directed the remake itself as well as a movie called Amour. Seeing as they were both excellent I don't see why this wouldn't be. I'm pretty hopeful to enjoy this. So let's get on with it.

Well it's almost entirely like the remake with very minor differences here and there. I think I felt just about the same as I did with that. The one thing about these kinds of films that do” read more

"Minäkin voisin mennä hakemaan kananmunia naapurista. Onhan tästä jo kaikki tarpeellinen sanottu, mutta sanottakoon vielä kerran, että Haneken yhteiskuntatutkiminen uppoaa itseeni parhaiten näiden hassujen pelien äärellä. Äärimmäisyyksin vedettävä ällöttävyys korostuu etenkin lapsen kylmäverisenä tappona, vaikka loppuratkaisukin on kaikessa kylmyydessään jäätävä. "

Great Nihilistic Movies (69 movies items)

"This sick film was made by the Austrian director Michael Haneke. In fact, these are two movies shot ten-years apart, with one a shot-for-shot remake of the other (Version two is shot in English.) A family of three goes on vacation to a country house, unluckily for them a couple of golf players decide to bother them in every possible way. The pair become more vicious with each encounter up until the moment where they decide to humiliate the parents No one is spared from the cynical sadism of the"
