Code Unknown (Criterion Collection)
One of the world's most influential and provocative filmmakers, the Academy Award-winning Austrian director Michael Haneke (Amour) diagnoses the social maladies of contemporary Europe with devastating precision and staggering artistry. His 2000 drama Code Unknown, the first of his many films made in France, may be his most inspired work. Composed almost entirely of brilliantly shot, single-take vignettes focusing on characters connected to one seemingly minor incident on a Paris street, Haneke's film-with an outstanding international cast headlined by Juliette Binoche (Three Colors: Blue)-is a revelatory take on racial inequality and the failure of communication in today's increasingly diverse European landscape.
