Funny Games

THE RULES ARE SIMPLE. PICK A FAMILY AND MAKE THEM PLAY. 

Shortly after arriving at their lake house, Ann, George (Naomi Watts, Tim Roth) and their young son get a visit from two polite men (Michael Pitt, Brady Corbet) ‚Äď who take them hostage. An Americanization of the 1997 Austrian thriller, which was also directed by Michael Haneke. His remake is shot-for-shot and adds absolutely nothing to the concept; the point is obvious early on and we’re left wondering why Haneke would do this in the first place. Excellent performances make the torture scenes hard to endure.

2008-France-Italy-Britain. 107 min. Color. Directed by Michael Haneke. Cast: Naomi Watts (Ann), Tim Roth (George), Michael Pitt (Paul), Brady Corbet (Peter), Devon Gearhart, Boyd Gaines.
