Movie Review

Last night I watched my first movie from Austrian director, Michael Haneke, Cache. The story is very interesting and psychologically thrilling. I really liked the subtle terror throughout the film and how it affects each character. I think Georges is a well done anti-hero as at first I really sympathize for him, but this sympathy grows smaller and smaller as the film progresses. The plot makes the watcher stay involved with the never-ending suspense , raw human emotion from the characters, and the big question- How does shame effect ones conscious? As far as cinematography goes, this film doesn’t really do anything crazy, but thats what makes it good. The often dark lighting, relaxed edits, and the standard camera work all emphasize that this is a real world problem that can happen to anyone which makes it scarier. The many still shots capture a realistic reaction of surprise present, and adds to the calm yet ominous motifs. This film was very well done and earns a 5/5 from me.
