Cache (Hidden) (2005) - Michael Haneke [Amazon.com] [FR] [DE] [UK]


Caché (marketed as Hidden in English) is a 2005 French-language film, written and directed by Austrian filmmaker Michael Haneke. It stars Daniel Auteuil as Georges, and Juliette Binoche as Anne. It is the first film where Haneke uses High Definition video cameras. During a press conference at the Cannes film festival he expressed the now famous quote: I always say that a feature film is twenty-four lies per second; the lies may be told to serve a higher truth, but they aren't always.

The film has no film score. --http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cach%C3%A9_%28film%29 [Aug 2006]
