Consensus: A creepy French psychological thriller that commands the audience's attention throughout.

Roger Moore
Orlando Sentinel

This French film (in bad, washed-out English subtitles) is a quiet chiller. A family's social fabric unravels right before our eyes.

Amy Biancolli
Houston Chronicle

Haneke's patient, tip-toed assault turns Caché from a little movie about spooked haute-bourgeois media personalities into a sneaky and effective exposé on the artifice of film.

Caché encourages us to look -- and then to look harder.

Terry Lawson
Detroit Free Press

One thing that cannot be argued is Haneke's ability to attract the best actors in cinema, perhaps by promising to take them places they have never been.

Matthew Pejkovic
Matt's Movie Reviews

Hidden is essential viewing for those who like their thrillers with depth, intelligence, and inimitable style.

Denver Post

Contrarian that he is, Haneke does a much finer job forcing questions than providing an answer.

Colin Covert
Minneapolis Star Tribune

Haneke's characters are never easy to like, yet it's impossible not to empathize with their anxiety. It's his mastery of the craft, both visual and sonic, that pulls viewers along in its grip.

The Film Yap

Coming from a guy who sliced private parts onscreen long before Lars von Trier, "Cache" is restrained. But Michael Haneke skillfully, slowly twists the knife on those who would so carelessly forget a decision that forever altered the life of someone else.

Michael Haneke's brilliant, challenging masterpiece begins with an outstanding solitary opening shot. At first it looks like a well framed long shot; then,… More
