Critic Reviews for Happy End
It too often feels like Happy End is a bunch of ideas in search of a movie.
An exceedingly clever, thought-provoking and dark reflection on life, death and family relations
The film both demands and rewards our close attention, but Haneke is such a master -- his framing so precise, his form so rigorous -- that it sucks you in by default.
Haneke has delivered the Haneke film that Haneke-haters see in their heads when they think of a Haneke film: a series of disjointed, narratively oblique episodes showing people being inhumane to each other.
Haneke's in such tight control of this material that he knows exactly how to mold such nastiness into a maze of tonal possibilities.
Audience Reviews for Happy End
Although I like to see Haneke exploring modern technology, he seems more interested in crafting a compilation of some of his best moments from previous films, which makes this cynical family drama feel like more of the same and less hard-hitting or cynical as it should be.
