Happy End


The Laurent family has issues. Georges (Jean-Louis Trintignant), the aging patriarch of the wealthy Callais clan, is more interested in exiting this world than enjoying it. Anne (Isabelle Huppert) has a repellent adult son to deal with, and Thomas (Mathieu Kassovitz) is having a graphic online affair. The match to this tinderbox of dysfunction is adolescent Eve, who moves in after her mother’s apparent suicide attempt, and in true Michael Haneke fashion is one unsettling teen. The Austrian auteur returns with his latest masterwork HAPPY END, bringing together his career-long fascinations with bourgeois guilt, surveillance, sins of the past and death of the most chilling degree, all into a cocktail of dread that is best served cold and clinical. Did we mention the Sia karaoke scene?
