This French film (in bad, washed-out English subtitles) is a quiet chiller. A family's social fabric unravels right before our eyes.

Haneke's patient, tip-toed assault turns Caché from a little movie about spooked haute-bourgeois media personalities into a sneaky and effective exposé on the artifice of film.

One thing that cannot be argued is Haneke's ability to attract the best actors in cinema, perhaps by promising to take them places they have never been.

Haneke's characters are never easy to like, yet it's impossible not to empathize with their anxiety. It's his mastery of the craft, both visual and sonic, that pulls viewers along in its grip.

Caché is about how the way we look at people -- a spouse, a child, a homeless person, a security guard -- reflects our own humanity, exactly the sort of thing the best works of cinematic art aspire to reveal.

What really makes Hidden so involving is Haneke's sometimes maddening insistence on keeping things vague.

Any work of art that embarrasses us for inclining toward warmth or decency (or, God forbid, humor) ought to be distrusted. On the other hand, I have found myself unable to shake Caché.

When Caché played at Cannes, some critics deplored its lack of a resolution. I think it works precisely because it leaves us hanging.

By the final riveting and static images, fear and guilt have become almost palpable. You won't be able to look away.

Cache never achieves any sort of emotional catharsis, or even resolution. But then Haneke's subject isn't catharsis, or resolution. It's repression -- and the willful amnesia of the wrongdoer.

Tempting as it is to dismiss Cache as a liberal guilt trip in the guise of a thriller, it is at the same time hard to deny its creepy, insinuating power.

To some degree, Hidden is a cat-and-mouse thriller, the only problem being that mouse and cat insist on swapping roles.

There's a sense that Hitchcock is hovering in the background and cheering for Auteuil, who musters all his French superstardom to play a man having his mask of blandness torn off.

Too much of the plot's machinery turns out to be a metaphorical mechanism by which to pin the tail of colonial guilt on Georges and the rest of us smug bourgeois donkeys.

Mr. Auteuil and Ms. Binoche are alternately graceful and scary as people pushed to the brink of madness through sheer duress, and the director does a tense job of capturing their panic as they drift from tranquility into chaos.

Austrian director Michael Haneke regularly makes films that provoke and disturb, but this is his first one in memory to work as a genuinely engaging thriller instead of an existential statement about violence or the absurdity of life.

In unraveling a nearly forgotten secret in the life of a self-satisfied and smug French intellectual, Haneke probes deeply into issues involving guilt, communication and willful amnesia.
