This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
“I like the multiplicity of books, because each book is different in the mind of each reader. It's the same with this film - if 300 people are in a cinema watching it, they will all see a different film, so in a way there are thousands of different versions of "Caché (Hidden)". The point being that, despite what TV shows us, and what the news stories tell us, there is never just one truth, there is only personal truth.”
Michael Haneke's Caché is the true definition of a film that requires multiple viewings to fully grasp and appreciate. Upon first viewing of the film one tends to become so swept up in the mystery of trying to…
you can read this film as an exploration of guilt and privilege as it applies to a man's unwillingness to accept his part in both and how that man acts as a synecdoche for all of France, but i personally am choosing to read it as a story about one fucked up couple that was still using their VCR in 2005 and how their refusal to simply not watch VHS tapes led to ruin. haneke's in the pocket of big HD-DVD
my fav haneke yet!!! consistently fascinated by the way he shoots his stories through such a clinical, cold, “objective” viewpoint, without sacrificing a dash of humanity — that talent is especially on display here, since the topic of surveillance plays such a key role. how is this movie both so dense and so sparse!?
This is from an assignment from my Art Philosophy class, hence why I mostly talk about the opening shot. I got an A.
I often argue for the importance of context in art, and this is one of the ultimate uses of it in film. The opening shot of Michael Haneke’s brilliant film Caché is at first mundane, then terrifying as it recurs throughout the film. It didn’t need to be artfully framed to serve its purpose perfectly and at first glance it isn’t, but, as is always the case with Haneke, there are myriad subtle things that add further to the disturbance.
The opening shot in question is of a domestic city street in France. It lingers for quite…
At this point, I should just tattoo Michael Haneke's name across my ass because he fucking owns it.
Caché is a tricky, tricky film, and Haneke is a tricky, tricky director. He loves to play games with his audience, much like a cat with a mouse. He relishes revealing the part we play as viewers, and consequently calling into question the act of viewership itself. Wheras Funny Games forces us to engage with our participation in film violence (specifically films of the tortue porn variety), Caché poses a question for the audience: is it possible that we are the stalker?
There's much to debate about who, exactly, is filming the tapes that terrorize the Laurent family. The brilliant final shot seems to be providing…
that Leonardo DiCaprio pointing at the tv meme is me whenever I’m watching the ending of Caché
Perhaps the clearest example of Michael Haneke's impressive ability at creating a deeply unsettling atmosphere through a direct, almost mundane approach. The opening shot takes the form of a cryptic video recording (which becomes a creative plot device) watching a couple's home and sets the tone for what is to come, with the long takes and natural ambience producing an incessant suspicion of being under surveillance.
This is a psychological thriller where the 'reveal' doesn't particularly matter since it's the topics that the mystery brings to light that become important. At its core it appears to be about the complex feelings the French (represented by Georges) have towards the Algerians (represented by Majid) resulting from the Algerian War and the…
I'm not even going to begin trying to decipher this complex web of mystery and deception that I just witnessed. After a few more viewings, I may be able to provide a better and more informed analysis. What I can say is that this is certainly potentially one of the greatest films of the 21st century, true to what others have told me.
Caché is so gripping, its dark tale of bourgeois guilt perfectly suited to Haneke's enchantingly brutal style. Everything here is too close to reality in an audio and visual sense, making it never feel quite right in the best way possible. Caché is a film about dredging up secrets and the way that guilt lingers and festers. The subtext about colonialism and society having never owned up to its wrongs from prior years is something everyone analysing Caché seems to draw upon. But I feel it extends beyond that to 21st century phenomena and consequences. There's more than one allusion to trouble in the Middle East, which seems a fantastic example of how past wrongs now bleed into our present.…
i mean... ok
This psychological thriller from Austrian filmmaker Michael Haneke possesses a tremendous central performance from Juliette Binoche as a wife going through a series of disturbing experiences. The trademark Haneke touches, such as his thoroughly voyeuristic approach and his preference for long shots, assures the film is elevated continuously beyond its rather generic framework.
The atmosphere generated has a taut and gripping quality and while the storytelling is, at times, intentionally bewildering as well as deciding to leave several of its narrative threads unresolved as it's psychological examinations squirm to the surface together with a commentary on the potency of regretfulness. Caché contains a discernible sense of fear alongside its disquieting rhythms and is a movie that is difficult not to appreciate.
Roger Ebert summed it up best .. CACHÉ is a Riddle, Wrapped in a Mystery, inside an Enigma!
To say Director Michael Haneke is a one of a kind filmmaker is a significant understatement. His ability to subvert the expectations of cinema requires viewers to reach up to his level of visionary brilliance to fully appreciate his work.
On the surface Cache is a dull French family drama with some solid camera work and a couple shock factor scenes. While I did not that' feel that negatively about it at first, its inner meanings did escape me.
Haneke says it plainly in his title, which in English means hidden. So that means we have to look closely in order appreciate…
haneke is a master, but I found this one kinda boring
haneke might be it yk
Considering the motifs Haneke drew in this film, I’m gonna throw out there that George Laurent was sending himself the notes and the tapes. Here me out: if the message of the film was based upon national shame of the French people, coupled with a common unwillingness to acknowledge the very islamophobia that causes their shame, then who better to represent that than the prideful Frenchman tormented by a past he never absolved? Of course no one else knows of that specific story, other than Majid. But there’s no solace in revenge.
The general cultural attitude of the french is rooted in strong pride. Anything other than that (feelings of regret or remorse) are not only cast aside but buried…
la manera que tiene esta película de hacer que te posiciones en contra de los protagonistas a pesar del sufrimiento con el que están lidiando me parece increible
It is natural for readers and viewers to seek some kind of safety when we watch a movie: We need to orient ourselves. If the characters are warm, we identify emotionally with them and feel secure in their company. If they are cold and cheerless, we stand back and become critical observers, trusting the camera as an all-seeing eye.
But what if the camera is in question as much as the characters? And what if that camera is in fact doing violence to the characters? There is no safety. There is no comfort, for anyone. That’s the world created in Cache.
I sometimes write notes in movies, about an image, feeling or idea the movie inspired. Here’s what I wrote…
아이의 방 안에는 지네딘 지단의 그림이 걸려 있다.
An enigma wrapped in a croissant wrapped in a quiche.
if you're the person that designs the apartments in Haneke films hmu
Analisi “Caché”: Il meta-giustizialismo
Una videocassetta, abbandonata all’entrata di una casa di una benestante famiglia parigina. La videocassetta mostra una ripresa di quell’entrata. Per quanto inquietante, i componenti della famiglia non gli prestano particolare attenzione.
Una seconda videocassetta, contenente lo stesso filmato. Questa volta, però, è avvolta da un disegno infantile, raffigurante quello che sembrerebbe essere un bambino che sputa sangue. Ora la famiglia comincia a preoccuparsi.
Alcune cartoline raffiguranti lo stesso disegno cominciano ad essere recapitate ai componenti della famiglia. Ora basta! Questo scherzo non fa più ridere.
Una terza videocassetta compare sull’uscio della casa. Però qualcosa è cambiato: il filmato non ci mostra più la solita entrata, ma la fattoria dove è cresciuto Georges, padre e marito della…
Terrorífico y minimalista thriller. Haneke utiliza la suposición y una inquietante estética naturalista para llevar al espectador al límite.
Haneke can shock even the most stone cold of film goers and this movie is a perfect example as to why.
I sent the tapes😅.
