the stark, brilliant and darkly comic new film from Michael Haneke, Oscar and double Palme d'Or winning director of CACHÉ, THE WHITE RIBBON, and AMOUR. A multi-generational drama starring the unsurprisingly excellent Isabelle Huppert and Mathieu Kassovitz as chilly siblings, with an extraordinary Jean-Louis Trintignant as the paterfamilias of their upper-class family of French developers. Exposing society’s superficiality and paralysis through a dissection of its emblematic rich class, weaving a multitude of threads into a collective noose and percolating towards it outrageous and sizzling climax, HAPPY END pulsates with a purpose in every frame. A disquieting, blisteringly funny evisceration of the bourgeoisie, HAPPY END succeeds in forcing audiences to confront — and uncomfortably consider — the dark side of human nature.
