The White Ribbon
Drama • R • 2009 • 2 hr 24 min
A real art for a movie, hypnotizes you to keep watching. Its like a Kafkas mystery book
It really sets you up in this dark, repressive, confusing environment.
A really creepy film foreshadowing the rise of fascism in Germany.
This film is an eerie look at the rural society before World War I and shows the life of children that would be adults in Nazi Germany.
Has a tense feeling throughout, very dark and beautifully made. Simply one of the best looking films made in modern times
A film that sadly seems timely; showing how fascism grows madness growing in communities. Tense and gripping.
Dark, difficult, but definitely worthwhile. Haneke always has something interesting to say.
A haunting masterpiece. One of my favorite foreign language films.
Disturbing, dark, and thought-provoking. Haneke at his most subtle.
Terrible stuff happens and you think you know why, but you never really do. Then WW1 breaks out. Stark & unfriendly; beautiful & real.
