A Cinema of Disturbance: TheFilms of Michael Haneke in Context “My films are intended as polemical statements against the American

‘barrel down’ cinema and its disempowerment of the spectator. They are an appeal for a cinema of insistent questions instead of false (because too quick) answers, for clarifying distance in place of violating closeness, for provocation and dialogue instead of consumption and consensus.” The Seventh Continent Not beautiful photography, not beautiful pictures, but rather necessary pictures, necessary photography. – Robert Bresson In the 1989 edition of Austrian Film, the Austrian Film Commission’s annual promotional booklet on the national film crop, Haneke describes The Seventh Continent, the first film of his “VergletscherungsTrilogie” (“glaciation trilogy”) (1) as follows: The film is about the life of Georg, his wife Anna and their daughter Eva over a period of three years: It is the story of a successful career, it is the story of the price of conformity, it is the story of mental short-sightedness, it is a family story and it is the story of a lived consequence.

This laconic summary is an apt approximation of the sparse film that premiered at Cannes 1989. The setting is a hopelessly defamiliarized Linz, the city rendered as a wasteland of industry, Autobahn and row houses. The characters populating this world are literally faceless: Haneke avoids shots including faces and instead concentrates on close-ups of hands and objects. There is little “story” to speak of. Father, mother, and daughter have all but stopped talking to each other. One day the daughter claims to be blind, although she isn’t. The mother’s brother comes for dinner and begins crying for an inexplicable reason. The father begins destroying the house and flushes piles of banknotes down the toilet. The
