Michael Haneke was awarded the Best Director prize at Cannes for his stunning exploration of a past that haunts the present.

This utterly compelling psychological thriller from Michael Haneke (‘Happy End’, ‘The White Ribbon’) - one of cinema’s most daring, original and controversial directors - stars Daniel Auteuil as Georges, a TV presenter who begins to receive mysterious and alarming packages containing covertly filmed videos of himself and his family.

To the mounting consternation of Georges and his wife (Juliette Binoche), the footage on the tapes – which arrive wrapped in drawings of disturbingly violent images – becomes increasingly personal, and sinister anonymous phone calls are made. Convinced he knows the identity of the person responsible, Georges embarks on a rash and impulsive course of action that throws up some unpleasant facts about his past and leads to shockingly unexpected consequences.
