2005. France/Austria/Germany/Italy. Directed by Michael Haneke. Screenplay by Haneke. With Daniel Auteuil, Juliette Binoche. An anonymous stalker torments an affluent Parisian couple with surveillance videotapes that gradually expose their secrets and acts of betrayal. Winner of the Best Director prize at Cannes, Haneke keeps his audience on-edge and off-balance, right down to the enigmatic and controversial final shot. An exquisite Chinese box of a film—flashes of memory, nightmares, prejudicial attitudes, and misread clues all seem to lead away from the truth—Caché lays bare France's colonialist guilt and present-day racism through a traitorous act committed by one young boy so long ago.
