Michael Haneke revisits familiar ground with some brilliance in Happy End, a portrait of a bourgeois Calais family with a number of skeletons loudly rattling around in their closets. Other familiar Haneke preoccupations recur including the nature of evil, race, death and the role that technology plays in our lives. It’s elegantly done with Huppert and Kassovitz both excelling in an ensemble cast that also welcomes Toby Jones.
Happy End features in our December film podcast. Our review starts at the 0.30 mark.
