The final film in Haneke's trilogy of the "emotional glaciation of Austria," 71 Fragments is a tapestry of narratives interwoven by the metaphysical hand of chance. Following several initially unrelated characters, their stories finally intersect in an explosively violent way. This act of gratuitous violence puts the onus on the dehumanizing and unforgiving nature of contemporary society.
