Genre: Art House, Drama, International and Thriller
Conclusion: 4/5
Even though this film is called Cache the other title that you might know it as is Hidden. Another film that is very similar to this is 45 Years. Cache is a very impressive piece of work. It does raise so many questions but questions that we will never know the answer to. This is about racial tension and people living side by side with each other. As well as it being about those two things it is also very much about surveillance. This did leave you wandering what the ending was all about. I guess with this is that you could just make your own mind up about that. You could say about this film that the father’s past has come back to haunt him. Fantastic central performances from both Daniel Auteuil and Juliette Binoche. This film is very French and gives you a glimpse of what life is like for educated media types in Paris. At the Cannes Film Festival in 2005 Michael Haneke won an award for Best Director. One film critic wrote about this film “Many things are hidden in the layers of this brilliantly clever mystery from Michael Haneke”.
