Writer/director Michael Haneke delivers a masterpiece of unsettlement with Hidden (Cache).

Life seems perfect for Georges (Daniel Auteuil) and Anne (Juliette Binoche), a bourgeois Parisian couple who live in a comfortable home with their adolescent son, Pierrot (Lester Makedonsky). But when an anonymous videotape turns up on their doorstep, showing their house under surveillance from across the street, their calm life begins to spiral out of control. Subsequent videotapes arrive, accompanied by mysterious drawings, and gradually Georges becomes convinced that he's being tormented by a figure from his past. But when he confronts him, the man assures Georges he is innocent. A growing sense of guilt begins to rise in Georges as he recalls his less-than-angelic childhood, yet for some reason he's unable to be completely honest with Anne. Soon, their happy home is an emotional battleground, leading to a climax that is breathtaking in its ferocity and ambiguousness.

Though Haneke's film works first and foremost as an insidious thriller, it is also a powerful commentary on the urban paranoia and racism that continue to permeate modern society. Without using a score, and keeping his camera detached and static, Haneke nonetheless establishes a nearly unbearable level of tension. Not for the squeamish, Hidden remains a work of menacing brilliance, and was the winner of the Best Director award at the 2005 Cannes Film Festival.

Watched this French film as I am having a pretty good run with my World Cinema films.
Story line was very Out There. A Simple concept that Terrifies.
I was Intrigued all the way though as to what was gonna happen next.
The Acting was Spot on by the Couple and the Rest of the Cast
The ending was left very open. Letting the viewer decide the future actions of the remaining Charcters.
Add onto my 2010 World Cinema List which Include PANS LABRYINTH, THE LIVE OF OTHERS, THE DIVING BELL and THE BUTTERFLY and TELL NO ONE and 3 IDIOTS.
Highly Recommended if you want something a bit more Challenging than the Norm.

 another peice of interesting world cinema

This is the multi award winning french thriller by director Michael Haneke, and is dubbed as the first great film of the 21st century and to be honest im not entirely convinced why. The film follows the main character Georges who is married and has a teenage son, one day they discouver that a video has been left at their doorstep, they watch this film and realise that it is a recording of their house and the day to day goings on, these videos also come with very rough pictures of a disturbing nature. After a while the couple start to get nervous as this is becoming a frequent thing and is also dragging up some memories of georges which he would sooner forget. Georges soon comes up with an idea as to whom is responsible for this and by using one of the videos he meets someone from his past and confronts them. This leads to Georges issuing threats and telling lies to his family, all of which are found out and cause troubles at home, the film comes to a rather shocking and unexpected ending which leaves you with the burning question "who the hell is doing this" a question that never gets answered. This film appears to be more of a warning to us in the days of reality tv and the conclusions that are drawn from small peices of media which people now seem to take as the gospel truth may actually be nowhere near the truth, and the consequences of the actions taken could indeed be catastrophic. The script is second to none and highlights the importance of trust in relationships in great detail, and the acting by Daniel Auteuil (Georgeos) is tremendos, although the pace of the film may be too slow for many people to hold an interest throughout. All in all the film is must see for any world cinema fan but is let down by the ending, although it does leave you asking many questions after you have finished watching it, could this be its aim? if so it has achived what it has set out to do

 Massively disappointed with this film.

After reading the reviews for this film on here in particular, I had high hopes for this film and waited to recieve it in anticipation. However, I turned out to be sorely disappointed.

Basic story - man and wife recieve creepy tapes showing that there is a camera positioned outside their house which watches them. Tapes get progressively creepier, with badly drawn, violent pictures encasing them. Man has a hunch to whom he thinks it is and goes to see the suspect.

Although that is a basic outline of the story and there were alot of good ideas in this film regarding the sad october massacre in France, the fact that the biggest question you want answered desperately doesn't get answered is deplorable. Quite frankly, although the ideas were good, the camera work I found annoying (I swear I didn't even see Juliette Binoche's face properly until at least half an hour in) and I felt I wasted a load of money on a pointless film which just ended abruptly. Wouldn't buy.

 One of the best films of this decade.

'Cache (Hidden)' isn't your average run-of-the-mill Thriller, which is probably why many people don't like it.
It's a film that's delicately wound with suspense and anxiety leaving it's audience puzzled yet immersed.
Michael Haneke is not a director; he's an auteur. His stylistic direction and methods treat the audience with some respect, he treats you as intelligent beings, not lousy Hollywood couch-potatoes., much like his other films do ('Funny Games', 'Benny's Video' ect.)

Both Auteuil and Binoche are outstanding, as well as some fantastic cinematography and a compelling narrative.

This film does need your ultimate attention however; one slip out of the feature and you may become lost so keep your eyes peeled.

Oh yeah.....and watch the credits, trust me.

Firstly, i want to address a couple of the below reviews which at first glance are justified; it does appear that the film was pointless and that the film just 'ended'... But it wasn't and it didn't! One of the other reviewers pointed out that it required 'careful' viewing. Absolutely true, and this is the major point!
(Read the synopsis above) this is an unusual film; haneke definately has an unusual style, which helps to slowly build the tension to a very dramatic point (which shocked the hell out of me), and also helps to create confusion; until the final scene i had no idea what was going to happen! I'm not sure i do still!!!! You are left (in part) to decide for yourself, however there is a major clue at the end! It is essential you watch till the very end! If you dont you will be left very disappointed indeed as you not be able to form a conclusion. I don't normally like this kind of ending to a film, mostly i want to be told what i should feel at the end and have a definate conclusion, but you cannot be a passive viewer in this film. Because the film feels very real it worked for me; this is a classic of french cinema. Don't watch this film alone, you will want to talk it through with someone after; it'll create discussion; isn't that what film should do?
Remember***watch to the end!!!!
