Das Weisse Band (aka The White Ribbon), Michael Haneke (2009)

The least I can say about this film is that it is beautiful. I’m not sure I grasped what Haneke is trying to convey through this film, at least not to it’s full extent. It’s clearly a film about the origins of “evil” and how we fear what we all have inside of us. But what I found compelling in this film was the interesting take on the little village theme and its twisted dynamics.
