Michael Haneke, 2017 107 minutes Isabelle Huppert, Jean-Louis Trintignant, Mathieu Kassovitz, Fantine Harduin, Loubna Abidar, Toby Jones France, Austria, Germany French, English 16 November 2017 Dutch Dutch premiere

A kaleidoscopic portrait of both a family and a society in deep chill.

HAPPY END sees Michael Haneke (AMOUR, CACHÉ, DAS WEISSE BAND), Austria's micro-surgeon of European decadence, in black comic mode, applying his scalpel to a rich Calais family, the Laurents, who own a construction company and cohabit uneasily in separate apartments housed within a luxurious estate.

A series of unfortunate events - an overdose (or was it?), a wall collapse on a job site, a suicide attempt - sends the family spinning, and Haneke mines strange comedy out of the Laurents' relatively emotionless, passive reactions.

PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS FILM IS IN FRENCH AND ENGLISH, WITH DUTCH SUBTITLES.
