Hidden

Michael Haneke's anxiety-inducing suspenser. Georges (Daniel Auteuil) and wife Anne (Juliette Binoche), are living secure and well in Paris. One day, their idyll is disrupted in the form of a videotape on their doorstep. The footage is of their house from across the street - who shot it and why? More tapes arrive, with disturbingly intimate and increasingly personal images. As Georges launches his own investigation, secrets from his past are revealed and the couple's wall of security begins to crumble.

With all the movies crowded in at the end of the year, you may have missed this haunting fever dream from Austrian master Michael Haneke (The Piano Teacher). Get cracking. Cache (French for "hidden") casts a spell that grips you and won't let go...

The opening shot of Michael Haneke's Caché shows the facade of a townhouse on a side street in Paris. As the credits roll, ordinary events take place on the street. Then we discover that this footage is a video, and that it is being watched by Anne and Georges Laurent (Juliette Binoche and Daniel Auteuil). It is their house. They have absolutely no idea who took the video, or why it was sent to them.

Nothing is ever as it seems in a Michael Haneke film. So disquiet sets in immediately when we're presented with a lingering, static shot of the house in which complacent bourgeois Daniel Auteuil and Juliette Binoche are raising their tweenage son. Sure enough, the image proves to be a surveillance tape, designed to alert Auteuil that the price for his idyllic existence is about to be exacted...

Don't bother getting comfortable when you sit down for Michael Haneke's Hidden (Cache). Soon as this quietly terrifying film starts, the unease starts to fester. The premise is fiendishly simple: Parisian couple Georges (Daniel Auteuil) and Anne (Juliette Binoche) start receiving videotapes of their home from an anonymous stalker. But there are many layers to this mystery, some of them tied directly to France's colonial past. Part paranoid thriller, part political allery, Hidden's a terrific return to form for Haneke...

Hidden opens with a static wide-angle on a Parisian street. Center-frame is the Laurent household. Credits appear, one word at a time with eerie monotony, until the screen is filled with text and then they disappear. The camera has not moved. There have been no cuts. Nothing has happened. We hear a man and a woman speak. They are talking about the image we...

Another of those frustratingly existential 'what the hell was that all about ?' movies, but with enough of a thriller element to keep you engrossed and absorbed as the 'story' develops. It requires close concentration all through. Worth repeating is the advice - watch closely what's happening in the very last scene, in particular two people meeting and...
