A beautiful, but dark and tragic story. Acting was amazing. Stunning cinematography, the atmosphere was great and perfect for the plot. Also, I was rather surprised at certain parts, there were some twists and turns. This is a modern masterpiece. 5/5 from me.

I can't believe it is so underrated. This is one of the best Haneke's. His work on light is amazing, to begin with. The script, characters, casting, production... it's all perfect. And intense, as all Haneke's movies. It was best movie 2009 for me along with Trier's 'Antichrist'. 100/10

Wow, that was an intense ride. You have to be in a certain mood to enjoy this film though. It's exhausting really.

reates an impeccable sense of time and place

Directed and written by Michael Haneke.This film is being compared to Ingmar Bergman. This is a German film with subtitles. If you love literary drama, this is the best.Like a Grimm fairy tale the dark doors in the goblin's lair start opening in geometric progression.

Phenomenal yarn-spinning! Beautiful cinematography and, for the time and setting, very real characters. Kept me interested right up to the end. A lot of loose ends, though, leaving a few key questions unanswered.

A great piece of film-making about hypocrisy disguised as truth

I quite enjoyed it. A different, but great take on the original story, with a great cast and cinematography.

Hawthorn- or Faulkneresque storytelling. Over two hours long but well worth your patience to let the story unfold. I tend to hate films that bash religion, but I don't feel that this film is unfair against religion. I think what it portrays is in a fair light. I think it portrays the clenched, domineering society that is everything that is wrong with religion when you lose sight of Jesus and his salvation focus entirely on works/actions/guilt instead. 5/5 stars from me.

I went to the movies and watched it. I had to pinch myself during the whole movie to keep from falling asleep. It was not my cup of tea at all. Though I must admit, the acting was great!

Like Haneke's masterpiece 'Cache', this film sets up a huge question mark right at the outset, we feel throughout that we are in a whodunnit, but the ending leaves us with more questions, and no answers. I think the Austrian director is reminding us: most of the world's acts of darkness remain in darkness. It is only fiction (which satisfies our infantile/human need for order/resolution)which makes us think that it is not so. Compelling, haunting, brilliant. [For something similar (also brilliant), try Arthur Miller's 'The Crucible'. Similar content: small community; austere, punitive Puritan values... the Devil walks abroad.]

A film with a perfect aesthetics but where the general atmosphere is stifling and unhealthy. The smart thing about this film is that pretty everything happens behind locked doors and closed shutters, so you basically can't be sure who the culprits are. The children's performance is excellent.

Whew, DARK,DARK but...interesting. You keep watching to find out who's doing the sinister deeds in this little town. Is it the children, the adults - WHY? Excellent acting though. 8/10

Really great movie. It being in black & white didn't bother me at all, so don't let that stop you from watching it. Also it having subtitles didn't bother me to much either. This was a very dramatic movie, kind of sad. Also it was a very dark movie. Wonderful story line, and this had wonderful acting. Definetly worth watching. 9/10
