Why It's FilmBuff
We are excited to bring Funny Games to digital audiences because of the importance it has in the career Michael Haneke. The 4th film made by Haneke, this film premiered at the Cannes Film Festival and went on to have an American remake 10 years later – again directed by Haneke. Despite being a film about violence, we are inspired by the way the film shows very little of the violence on-screen and yet it manages to frighten us. For all these reasons, we are thrilled to share this iconic film.
