The premise of “Caché,” a psychological thriller from German director Michael Haneke is unsettling. It explores how completely a couple’s lives can unravel when they are terrorized by an unknown voyeur who videotapes their comings-and- goings, revealing secrets about their lives.
Starring Oscar winner Juliet Binoche, it is not an easy film. No answers are offered and it emits an overwhelming aura of paranoia, but it does offer up interesting comments on the power of denial and guilt.
Great acting, unsettling subject matter and provocative filmmaking make Cache essential viewing.
