Watch: A Family Gathers in First Three Clips from Michael Haneke’s ‘Happy End’

Written by on May 18, 2017 


This weekend will bring the debut screenings of our most-anticipated film of CannesMichael Haneke’s Happy End. Starring Isabelle Huppert, Jean-Louis Trintignant, Mathieu Kassovitz, Fantine Harduin, Franz Rogowski, Laura Verlinden, and Toby Jones, the first three clips (with English subtitles!) have now arrived, which depict the life of a bourgeois European family.

“The film is a portrait of a very wealthy family running this big company in Calais, not far from the camp where the migrants are. And it says a lot about how in our lives, in our privileged world, we are too often deaf and blind to the harsh reality of the world — about the privileged world,” Huppert, who previously worked with Haneke on The Piano Teacher and Time of the Wolf, told THR. “We all know about the negative power of images, of those circulating on the Internet, about how images can be used to say very horrible things but I think fiction, films like these also have a role to play, if we are to understand what is happening, and understand ourselves.”

Ahead of our review, check out all three clips below.

“All around us, the world, and we, in its midst, blind.” A snapshot from the life of a bourgeois European family.
