Code Inconnu

Brilliant filmmaking by the young Austrian director, and a return to real acting by the star of Chocolat. Michael Haneke contrives to tell a love story in the format of 'inter-related lives' - his snapshot technique gives a taut thriller feel to the proceedings - and he even weaves in the asylum-seeker theme (for the third time in this season's films). You'll not fall asleep in front of this one.


“European cinema at its very best”
