French film `Cache',' (`Hidden') by director Michael Heneke, is effective for many reasons. Quietly, the movie creeps up on us and makes the tangible presence of surveillance unnerving in a convincing way.     At the beginning of the movie middle aged couple, George and Anne, are viewing a video in their Paris flat. At first we don't see them; we only see the video and hear them as they watch and rewind or fast-forward the tape playing. During the video they try to place the …

In Cache, director Michael Haneke creates a complex suspense film of grand psychological proportion where although mesmerized for over 90 minutes, the audience departs with a moody sense of perplexity that deeply disturbs and conjures in the mind more compelling post-9/11 possibilities than those originally thought feasible.     Does this film act as an allegory as some of the other reviewers have suggested of a modern day France dealing with the problems it created with the …

I honestly don't see what all the fuss is about. Instead of "gripped" like many people seem to have been, I was simply bored by the long, seemingly interminable shots in the film and I kept screaming to myself "edit, edit!"

Michael Haneke ('Le Temps du loup', 'La Pianiste', etc) is a writer/director who respects the minds of his viewers. Nothing he creates is simple, instantly understandable, full of Hollywood endings, nor does he answer the questions he poses. He merely gives us the visual evidence of dysfunction, allows us to watch it without explaining it, and in doing so he makes the viewer an integral part of the film experience.    CACHE is a tough movie, one that requires total concentration …

The latest film by Michael Haneke is also, I believe, his most assured and accomplished work yet. The film works on several levels. One of the effects of the "surveillance" theme -- and Haneke's brilliant choice to integrates scenes of surveillance seamlessly into the "regular" footage -- was to compel me to pay more attention to the screen than I think I have for any film in a long time. Given that I could not be sure a particular scene was "part of the film" or surveillance footage, I watched …
