Plot – Spoilers:
One of the greatest home invasion films from a master. This one here is the original German version.
An Austrian family of Mum, Dad and son head to their lake home for the holidays. It’s meant to be a couple of weeks of socializing with similar neighbors and plenty of classical music. Instead, a couple of young men inflict riveting terror and grindcore on the family while also involving the viewer in their fun ‘n games.
Funny Games was remade a decade later in an almost identical US version.
