Time of the Wolf (2003)

Another Michael Haneke film—Time of the Wolf (2003). This film the one Haneke made before Caché and it didn’t interest me in the least.

It starts of in the same way that Funny Games does. A French family goes to vacation at their cottage when they discover that they have some unwanted guests. Someone is murdered and chaos takes over for the rest of the film.

We follow this family for the rest of the film as they try to get to the south of France. Why? There has been terrorist act, or maybe or war has started or maybe the world is ending. We never find out. There is a gruesome scene involving the killing of a horse (the death of an animal seems to be a prerequisite for a Haneke film).

I found this one a struggle to watch because I didn’t care about the characters or the story.
