Haneke braves the new world, the modern world. He braves criticism at our youth's cell phone culture and our need for an audience. Haneke braves comedic elements, making us laugh to show how ridiculous our behavior has become in this past century. Haneke steps out of his comfort zone with this film. Does he succeed? Meh.
