Happy End

Michael Haneke (Amour, The White Ribbon) returns with a twisted, dark satire on affluence and human suffering set in one of the current epicentres of humanity’s moral failure.

Isabelle Huppert, Jean-Louis Trintignant and Mathieu Kassovitz play members of the Laurent family, who run a successful construction company and are so bound up in their own jealousies, business squabbles, repressed feelings and personal failings that they can no longer communicate effectively with each other, particularly without the aid of technology. For all their familial concerns, what truly exposes the Laurents’ lack of connection with humanity is their location – they live in Calais, and display no acknowledgement or interest in the human rights crisis lying at their very door. Haneke’s grim view of humanity has never been sharper with this deeply unconventional family drama.
