    1983. Austria. Directed by Michael Haneke. Screenplay by Haneke. With Elfriede Irrall, Suzanne Geyer. "The story of an adulterous romance between a teacher and a journalist that has been described by Haneke himself as being closer to John Cassavetes than Hollywood melodrama" (Roy Grundmann, Cineaste). Though his characters are paralyzed by tragic indecision, Haneke handles their intricate comings and goings with a light touch, and in the end, as scholar Alexander Horwath observes, "the utopia of love remains." In German; English subtitles. 98 min.
