the white ribbon
I went to see this film by Michael Haneke at the GFT last night. It was winner of the Palme D'Or at Cannes this year, and definitely worth seeing if you get the chance. Stylistically, it takes it's cue from the photographs of August Sander, and is incredibly beautifully made. For Haneke, the film is about "the origin of every type of terrorism, be it of a political or religious nature."
