Movie Info

Three members of a middle-class family are followed as their lifestyle slowly disintegrates. Nothing spectacular happens: it's just the dreary un-ending grind of a go-nowhere existence. The film's final scene emulates Fassbinder, as the threesome bid auf wiedersehn to everyone and everything in a gaudy, grotesque manner. It goes without saying that Der 7. Kontinent is not for everyone's taste. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Critic Reviews for The Seventh Continent (Der Siebente Kontinent)

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (2) | Fresh (5) | Rotten (2) | DVD (2)

A Kafkaesque nightmare scenario of dread and ambiguity rooted in the aimlessness of contemporary life.

Minneapolis Star Tribune
Top Critic

Intelligent, hard-hitting, nightmarish family drama that's based on a true story and told in a repetitive clinical style that reflects the subjects' anomie.

Ozus' World Movie Reviews

Haneke's impressive feature theatrical debut offers a chillingly bleak look at a family and its descent into barbarism as a result of alientaion and disengagement from life.

Full Review… | June 20, 2007
EmanuelLevy.Com

Confirms -- through its narrow portrait of life as unrelentingly bleak -- its own gloomy cynicism.

Full Review… | April 18, 2007
Lessons of Darkness

A stunning examination of the effects of emotional isolation and the inability to communicate in the modern age.

Full Review… | August 19, 2006

Michael Haneke could be cinema's Debbie Downer, if only he had any sense of humor.

Audience Reviews for The Seventh Continent (Der Siebente Kontinent)

a really powerful debut and in a way haneke has been making the same point ever since (by the looks of his current film as well: will soon see!)

Bruising and depressing, the Seventh Continent builds and builds to a shattering climax with a sense of monotony that few have ever achieved. Its power lies in its ambitious decision to show us what has happend and let us draw our own conclusions, or make up our own reasons for why it went the way it did.
