ABOUT THE FILM:

Master auteur Michael Haneke (Amour) returns with a biting satire on middle-class family values set in the shadow of the European refugee crisis.

When her mother falls mysteriously ill, Eve (Fantine Harduin) is sent to live with her estranged father’s relatives in Calais. The Laurent family own a lucrative construction company and live in a sprawling mansion house, waited on by servants. But trouble is brewing, as a series of intergenerational back-stabbings threaten to tear the family apart.

Distracted by infidelities and betrayals, they fail to notice that their new arrival has a sinister secret of her own.

Nominated for the 2017 Palme d’Or, Happy End stars Isabelle Huppert, Jean-Louis Trintignant, Mathieu Kassovitz and Toby Jones, and bears all the hallmarks of Haneke’s uniquely stark and unsympathetic style. Pairing pitch-black humour with chillingly precise direction, it’s proof that he remains one of modern cinema’s true visionaries.
