Happy End

(French with English subtitles): This latest film from Michael Haneke (director of the wonderful Amour) stars Isabelle Huppert (as Anne) in a family dysfunction film. Everyone has issues. Anne is trying to turn her family’s business around. Her brother suddenly becomes the full-time parent of his daughter after her mother slips into a coma. Anne’s son cannot seem to rise to the responsibility as manager in the business. Anne’s father is not particularly happy with life. Haneke weaves the story in unexpected ways – he leads you to think one outcome is coming and then suddenly takes you down a different path. Thumbs up for a film that is not the director’s best but demonstrates a gutsy narrative style.
