Funny Games U.S.
Filmfest 2009

In 1997, writer-director Michael Haneke made the controversial Austrian thriller, FUNNY GAMES, about two young men who terrorize a family on vacation. A decade later, Haneke was convinced by producer Chris Coen to bring the story to America, filming a nearly word-for-word, shot-for-shot English-language version... Though difficult to watch, FUNNY GAMES is ultimately a rewarding and illuminating film, though not for the squeamish.
