The 7th Continent (1989)

The first movie by Michael Haneke (proper, having already made ​​some films for German television) is a treatise of intent, a good example of the interest which the Austrian director channeled all his subsequent films.

To be specific, although the film is divided into three parts, may dissected in half in terms of plot development. A first half to show the daily life of a bourge... read more

A good movie

Well, first of all, I thought it was such a depressing movie. It was in fact Michael Haneke’s directing début and there were already many of his trademarks : the sober and ascetic directing, the unknow actors (at least, to me), the osbcure plot and the pessimistic view on humanity. Anyway, by now, I had seen most of the movies directed by Michael Haneke so I should be used to it but still. Inde... read more

"The story chronicles three years in the lives of a middle class family seemingly caught up in their daily routines, only troubled by minor incidents. Behind their apparent calm and repetitive existence however, they are actually planning something sinister. I've seen quite a few of Michael Haneke movies over the years and enjoyed all of them apart from this one that is (it was his first as director. The cinematography and atmosphere were there, but the story and character development were not. "

"As a condemnation of Western life under capitalism, it's undeniably potent, but the true merit of the film is in its horrifying extended document of self-destruction. The smashing of clocks, the flushing of the money, all the gestures of release before taking the plunge are just such incredible images. It's denouement, the television reflecting the character's inhumanity, hasn't left me to this day."
