The Seventh Continent - "Beautifully controlled and liberatingly intelligent," (Michael Wilmington, Chicago Tribune), The Seventh Continent is the first theatrical film written and directed by German-born auteur Michael Haneke (The Piano Teacher, Cache). "A shocking and potent statement about out times" (Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader), this acute chronicle of a family degenerating into self-destruction is the first of a feature-film trilogy (concluding with Benny's Video and 71 Fragments of a Chronology of Chance) that centers on the intersections between media, alienation and violence. Benny's Video - Winner of the FIPRESCI award given by the International Federation of Film Critics in 1993, Benny's Video is the second installment of Michael Haneke's (The Piano Teacher, Cache) "emotional glaciation" trilogy. Written and directed by Haneke, the "bone-chilling_ (Stephen Holden, The New York Times) feature film opens with the amateur footage of a pig being slaughtered with a butcher gun. This unceremonious recording is owned by 14-year-old Benny (Arno Frisch; Haneke's Funny Gamers), a boy whose preferred mediums of experience are video cameras, action movies, and the surveillance monitors placed in his room. 71 Fragments Of A Chronology Of Chance - A meticulous depiction of the numbing and normalizing effects of television, Michael Haneke's 71 Fragments of a Chronology of Chance "is the most intelligent and powerful study by cinema" (Maximilian Le Cain, Senses of Cinema) of the 20th century's quintessential medium. A "cool, cerebral and painstaking" (Time Out London) examination of several characters, including an Austrian university student who goes on a shooting spree, the third installment of Haneke's "glaciation trilogy" is a mosaic of 71 film tableaux - beautifully shot by cinematographer Christian Berger (Cache and The Piano Teacher). The Castle - Michael Haneke's film of Franz Kafka's The Castle pairs one of the most influential voices in 20th century literature with one of the most visionary filmmakers of the new millennium. Originally broadcast on Austrian television in 1997, Kino offers The Castle on US DVD for the first time. Funny Games - Michael Haneke's Controversial thriller watches an affluent couple, their child and dog as they arrive at their lakeside vacation home. Settling into their holiday routine, the family is visited by a pair of clean-cut young men in tennis whites and gloves, who inexplicably turn ruthless and brutal, forcing the family into playing their "funny games.' Code Unknown - Carefully interweaving the stories of Anne, a promising actress (Juliette Binoche), her photojournalist boyfriend Georges (Thierry Neuvic), a young teacher of African descent (Ona Lu Yenke) and a Romanian illegal immigrant (Luminita Gheorghiu), Haneke crafts a compelling portrait of life in a fractured, lonely world. As these divergent stories gradually unfold, the seemingly unrelated lives prove to have very much in common, as they struggle for love and acceptance in society of locked doors and cold stares. The Piano Teacher - Winner of three top prizes at Cannes, including the Grand Jury Prize, The Piano Teacher is a lucid descent into the most feverish depths of sexual obsession. Isabelle Huppert's Cannes and European Film Award winning performance (called "A brilliant psychological portrait" by Variety) effortlessly illuminate the darkest corners of the human psyche in one of the most courageous characterizations of her celebrated career. Huppert and her co-star (and fellow Cannes honoree) Benoit Magimel transcend mere art-house erotica as they plunge headlong into a whirlpool of twisted desire and rage.
