'Happy End' at Frome Film Club

Happy End
Director: Michael Haneke, France 2017, 105 minutes, Cert 15

The affluent Laurent family live in an haute-bourgeois bubble in Calais, all under the same (albeit palatial) roof, oblivious to the migrant crisis unfolding a few miles from their home: patriarch George, succumbing to dementia, workaholic daughter Anne (Isabelle Huppert) who now runs the family construction business, and womanising doctor son Pierre, his new wife Anais and their baby. A black comedy portrait of family dysfunction and an unforgiving and gripping satire on the moral failings of polite society.

“A stark, unforgiving and gripping satire” Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
