A nearly shot for shot, line for line remake of Michael Haneke's own 1997 original. While this movie is not like Van Sant's Psycho remake;lifeless and dull, it's not the thrill the original was either.
I admit that this is in part because I have seen the original so the shocks and twists are just not there this time. However, all involved to great jobs in their respective role, the acting and direction is superb.
Over all, if you've seen the original you've more or less seen this. Nothing new is added, and the only reason to watch is for the excellent acting of the cast, and it is worth a watch for this reason alone.
