As with the 1997 original, Haneke’s new Funny Games follows a family’s struggle to stay alive after their lakeside vacation is interrupted by a surprise visit by some sadistic psychopaths. Naomi Watts and Tim Roth take over for Susanne Lothar and Ulrich Muhe in the lead roles.
Haneke’s original film polarized critics — it’s currently at 60 percent on the Tomatometer — but it had some interesting twists; for instance, one of the villains had a habit of breaking the fourth wall, and a lot of the violence takes place off-screen. American audiences, of course, like their violence front and center, and if this trailer is any indication, that’s what they’ll get. Click on the link below to see more!
