The Port Fairy Film Society is proud to present this months Friday night film “The White Ribbon”
The White Ribbon (German) is a 2009 black and white drama written and directed by Austrian filmmaker Michael Haneke. The story darkly depicts society and family in a northern German village just before World War I, and the landscape leading to the rise of Nazism. The film explores a series of strange events beginning in the village school which then continue to unfold in the community. The film is full of clues but explanations are not easily given or found which has the effect of making it mesmerizing and tantalising to the viewer.
According to Haneke, the film is about "the origin of every type of terrorism, be it of political or religious nature.”
This film is described as both disturbing and thought provoking and has generated a wide variety of responses and opinions.
The At the Movies crew of Margaret and David describe the film as “Impressive” both giving it four stars.
Other critics describe it in this way: “The White Ribbon is a stark, contemplative and hauntingly brilliant film” and “Unlike conventional thrillers, this film does not restore a moral order to the universe. Rather, it questions it. It must be seen.”
“The White Ribbon” premiered at the 62nd Cannes Film Festival in May 2009 and won the Palme d'Or, followed by positive reviews and several other major awards, including the 2010 Golden Globe Award for Best Foreign Language Film.
