Le Temps du Loup (The Time of the Wolf)
Watched this last night. I like Haneke as a director (though I found the Piano Teacher quite gruelling) and this was really absorbing. A short documentary on the DVD helped, when he said that he didn't like narrative to take the weight of the film - I'm the opposite - but it made clearer what he was intending to do. Lots of remarkable images and sequences; and it is, of course, a vision of a post-Peak future.
