THE WHITE RIBBON

DAS WEISSE BAND

SOMERVILLE EXCLUSIVE

Director: Michael Haneke • 144min • M
In German with subtitles

Set on the eve of WWI and immaculately crafted in stunning black and white, Michael Haneke's exquisite and brooding meditation on repression, tradition and the sins of the father represents a breathtaking new direction, not just in Haneke's career, but in European cinema.

From the celebrated director of Hidden, Funny Games and The Piano Teacher, this mysterious story is structured around a series of misfortunes that befall the citizens of a small Protestant community in rural Germany. The film scrutinises the ills  passed down from generation to generation as it examines the atrocities committed by the elders and the psychological damage borne by the children.
