Happy End


2017 | 107 minutes | Rated R

Even if Austrian director Michael Haneke's bad-boy iconoclast image may have taken a hit since he remade his own Funny Games with American stars, he's still made great recent films—and with his lurid misanthropy focused on the perverse complacency of wealthy Europeans, it was only inevitable that he tackle the crumbling French establishment in the face of the migrant crisis. Happy End is his first feature film since Amour, his Oscar-winning film starring the legendary actors Emmanuelle Riva, Jean-Louis Trintignant, and Isabelle Huppert. Riva has passed on, but Trintignant and Huppert have returned for a story of an upper-class patriarch with dementia and his daughter, who's frantically trying to keep the family together. Secrets, poison, negligence, and incest threaten this bourgeois dynasty's grasp of its own fate.
