Based on an incident on a Parisian boulevard, Michael Haneke’s film follows several people, including an actor (Juliette Binoche). Jürgen Jürges films the fragmented scenes as tracking shots with abrupt beginnings and endings. Reality disintegrates into its constituent parts. It’s not the narrative that connects the characters, but something else: ever-present violence and shocking indifference towards it. Haneke’s formally most ambitious film is, perhaps, his most brutal.
