This is a thriller that takes the liberty of keeping an eye not only on the clockwork of suspense, but also on politics, the social, and the abrupt shifts in power between people. As suspenseful as it is, this film could just as easily be called a melodrama or a political allegory.
Michael Haneke is too strong and too precise an auteur to merely serve a genre. Haneke's work, which has always been committed to the greatest possible simplicity - certainly in the sense of Robert Bresson - but also to potential changeability, has changed further with CACHÉ: Outwardly it appears even clearer, even more undisguised, but inwardly, at its core, this film seems even more complex than any of Haneke's earlier films: it is a film about the shock of the loss of privacy, a film about image-making and about France's historical traumas.
