Michael Haneke A middle class family are taken hostage in their holiday home by two young men who force them to play sadistic games for their own amusement. Throughout Funny Games, director Michael Haneke strives to reawaken and stimulate audiences who have become accustomed to stylised cinematic violence and graphic imagery. The film not only assumes the form of a devastatingly cruel home-invasion narrative, but a scathing and darkly humorous critique on violence in modern cinema.
Plot[ edit ] George and Ann Farber, their son Georgie, and their dog Lucky arrive at their lake house. Their next-door neighbour, Fred, is seen with two young men, Peter and Paul.
They find Fred reacting somewhat awkwardly. Fred and Paul come over to help put the boat into the lake. After they leave, George and Georgie stay outside by the lake, tending to their boat.
Georgie asks his father why Fred was behaving so strangely. While Ann is in the kitchen cooking, Peter visits to borrow some eggs. Ann gives him the eggs but Peter drops them.
Feeling a little annoyed, Ann gives him another four eggs and Peter takes off. Soon afterwards she hears Lucky barking and Peter and Paul show up together. Paul asks her to try out one of the clubs outside and she begrudgingly approves.
In the boat, George and Georgie hear Lucky barking hysterically when suddenly the barking stops. Peter and Paul request more eggs, as the last ones also ended up broken. Ann becomes frustrated, but when George tries to force the men to leave, Peter breaks George's leg with the golf club.
The two young men then take the family hostage. Paul guides Ann on a hunt to find the family's dog, which he has killed with George's golf club. When their neighbors, the Thompsons, visit, Ann passes the two men off as friends.
They return to the house, and the Farbers are forced to participate in a number of sadistic games in order to stay alive. Paul asks if George or Ann wants to bet that they will be alive by 9: Between playing their games, the two men keep up a constant patter.
Paul frequently ridicules Peter's weight and lack of intelligence.
He describes a number of contradicting stories of Peter's past, although no definitive explanation is ever presented as to the men's origins or motives. During the "games", Peter and Paul put Georgie's head in a bag, nearly suffocating him until George asks Ann to follow their instruction to expose her breast to the intruders.
When released from the bag, Georgie tries to escape under the help of his parents.This Pin was discovered by laura pons vidal. Discover (and save!) your own Pins on Pinterest. This interactive essay map, developed by ReadWriteThink, adds fun to the process of planning.
