A tour inside a master's mind
23 March 2013 | by cinematic_aficionadoSee all my reviews

In this intimate behind the scenes documentary about cinema master Haneke, we are treated to an insight into his working methods, what appeals and inspires him.

It is remarkable how every actor interviewed for this feature expressed noting but deep respect and admiration for Michael H much as they admitted that it was only he that had a lot of fun on the set.

My favourite moment was when he said of an approach to make a Hollywood movie to which his response were "I was offended, the script was so grotesque".

Insightful, charming with lots of wit, this is a must see for all those interested in great contemporary cinema.
