Synopsis:

Brace yourself for the end of humanity, Michael Haneke-style.

A wealthy middle class French family deals with the aftermath of a serious industrial accident by making a series of moral mis-steps. Happy End focuses on each family member in turn, as they retreat into self-destruction or escape. Concluding one of the most exhilarating and incisive runs of European cinema, director Haneke (White Ribbon, Amour) updates his familiar obsessions of tainted love, media influence and hypocrisy, and signs off with a surprising big dash of gallows humour.

Critical reaction:
  • Michael Haneke's satanic soap opera of pure sociopathy... a stark, unforgiving and gripping satire ★★★★★
