"The White Ribbon" has the sort of cinematic power that affects you long after you've seen the entire film in darkened theatre. It's taken me a few days to sift through everything I've seen and have felt to really make a quality decision about the tenderness that Haneke has on display. It no doubt has the feeling of something Bergman/Nykvist would have produced in the 60's. I can only imagine that that filmmaking team was part inspiration for Haneke while writing this odd and muted film. The cinematography is certainly beautiful. Strange things occur through-out this film. But the strange occurrences are so much on the back-burner after they happen, that when you do think of the crimes committed in the film 30 minutes later, you get chills because what makes the crimes so horrifying isn't necessarily anything you see on screen, but the careful planning that went into them. As the film unfolds the grim nature of people in this little German town is slowly revealed, and the openness is so sadistic, you wonder with their faith if God will be able to judge them fairly enough to allow them a place in heaven. Are the children hiding something? Is their behavior attributed to the childish ways the adults treat each-other. Or is simply to break free from the conformity that has been taking place in the town for quite sometime? Michael Haneke does a terrific job at clawing under your skin even when you're unaware it has begun. He has you right where he wants you, then when all is said and done and the credits roll and you go home, only then do you feel the sting of the tight grip Haneke still holds around your mind and gut. I need to see this again. Now. One of the Best of 2009.

Beautiful, be it an oppressive film, absolutely worth watching. The events are cruel, but some of them can be justified. It leaves you pondering not only about who is responsible for the crimes, but also what the value of Justice is in that (and our own) society. The film really is much better in its original (German) version, as the real voices of the actors are at least as important as the acting itself.
