The Seventh Continent

The Seventh Continent

£3.99 (Discount available for Curzon Cinema Members)
Before his international breakthrough with ‘Funny Games’ and the prestige that surrounded his two Palme d’Or wins for ‘The White Ribbon’ and ‘Amour’, Michael Haneke’s early work offered up an examination of contemporary middle class life, the all-pervasiveness of the media and a sense that people are stuck in a world increasingly detached from emotion. Based on a true story, Haneke's feature debut presents a disturbing portrait of familial disintegration. Set over a three-year period, ‘The Seventh Continent’ reveals how the mundane day-to-day routines of a middle class family alienate them from the world and each other. The family is a microcosm of Western society and its implosion is a shocking indictment of the values it claims to espouse. BBFC Certified 18
