This utterly compelling psychological thriller from Michael Haneke—one of cinema's most daring, original and controversial directors—stars Daniel Auteuil as Georges, a television 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.
Hidden, dir. Michael Haneke, France 2005, 35mm, 118 mins
