Funny Games is extreme without directly showing much of the violence on-screen. Director Michael Haneke brings up a most disturbing portrait of what some human beings are capable of doing to each other for no other reason than entertainment.
Haneke is known for toying with his viewers. On more than one occasion, one of the characters breaks the fourth wall to talk to the audience. This, however, in no way detracts from the powerful unfolding of the shockingly cold events.
Susanne Lothar, Ulrich Mühe, Arno Frisch and Frank Giering star in this unforgettable thriller.
