I warn you, that's not for all audiences. This very disturbing movie is long before it lets you get into it. But after thirty minutes, you may feel dizzy and feel ache in your belly. Dizzy but glued to it. Astounding performances that don't prevent some people among the audience to run away towards the cinema exit. You can also watch it as a tribute to Michael Haneke and his country: Austria. I let you find out why. Nathalie Baye is as outstanding as usual and the new comer, the Belgian actor who plays his son is also unbelievably good, unforgettable.
And, I repeat, beware before going to see it. It's worth, but not for every one. I don't know the director nor most of the actors.
