Dir: Michael Haneke Cast: Isabelle Huppert and Jean-Louis Trintignant Genre: Drama A joyously uplifting tale, life affirming, heartwarming and filled with optimism.

If you want a bleak, laughless account of contemporary French upper middle class gloom and dreary moral quibbles, shot with a nihilistic life-hating clarity, then this is the movie you have been waiting for. Keywords: suicide, sadomasochism, dementia, depression and the inability to love. Discuss.
