Director: Yves Montmayeur
"A must see for anyone who admires this director." – The Guardian
While cinephiles and MIFF audiences will be familiar with his 25-year oeuvre, the wider movie community continues to discover the work of Austrian auteur Michael Haneke (Amour, MIFF 2012). On the back of numerous Cannes triumphs and Academy Award successes for Haneke, director Yves Montmayeur attempts to shine a light on one of the most complex, intriguing and notoriously private artists working in cinema today.
A comprehensive study of Haneke's body of work, punctuated with previously unseen footage (including entertaining behind-the-scenes insights of Haneke at work shooting scenes), revealing and candid interviews with some of Europe's A-list actors and, of course, the eponymous director himself, Montmayeur's documentary is the definitive study of one of cinema's most enigmatic directors at work.
"A fascinating examination of the man and his films." – London Evening Standard
