At this point, a performance by Daniel Auteuil alone is enough to get a film into my Netflix queue. This is Caché.

"The opening shot of Michael Haneke's 'Caché' shows the facade of a townhouse on a side street in Paris. As the credits roll, ordinary events take place on the street. Then we discover that this footage is a video, and that it is being watched by Anne and Georges Laurent (Juliette Binoche and Daniel Auteuil). It is their house. They have absolutely no idea who took the video, or why it was sent to them.

So opens a perplexing and disturbing film of great effect, showing how comfortable lives are disrupted by the simple fact that someone is watching."

-- Roger Ebert
