Indie Gems: Caché
You are being watched.
A local TV host Georges, (Daniel Auteuil) gets video tapes left at his doorstep wrapped in bizarre children's drawings. The tapes are merely surveillance of his house. His family, wife Anne (Juliette Binoche) and young son Pierrot (Lester Makedonsky) going about their daily business. At first, Georges is open with Anne regarding this, but when he starts to have a hunch on who's sending them, he starts keeping secrets.
When Josh over at The Cinematic Spectacle named this his Best Picture winner in his CinSpec awards, I knew I had to see this. We'll ignore the fact that he made that post in January..my Netflix queue is full, okay?! Needless to say, it lived up to his praise.
Michael Haneke is a director that practically forces you to watch his films. Not a bad force, but he needs your full attention because you're going to have to look for small details that are not as insignificant as they first seem. I loved the mystery here. Caché is expertly shot and the two leads give great performances. It rarely has a dull moment.
Memorable Quote. "...you want a transcription of the conversation?" - Anne (Juliette Binoche)
