    Something about Haneke's style is deeply moving. I will be revisiting this film soon enough that is for sure.

    Haneke's "Crash". Pretty slow, but I could watch Binoche doing ADR and re-shoots all day.

    On the surface, there is a good movie that could work. The idea of splitting up separate stories to show the real issue of miscommunication that can affect not just two individuals but entire nations is something that needs to be examined more and fortunately Michael Haneke made the choice to examine this. Unfortunately, "Code Unknown" fails spectacularly at being something worthwhile because Haneke stretches this out too long. The idea is fresh and something that must be examined, but…

    Michael Haneke's "Code Unknown" starts off on fire with a most curious premise and then... Zzzzzzzz. The viewer is presented with one mundane sequence after another until the film slightly rallies for the close. Why alienate when you have your audience in your hand?

    No hay mucho que decir, más que es otra gran película de Haneke, con todas las cualidades necesarias para calificar como tal: largos planos secuencia, cortes abruptos, personajes psicologicamente inestables, violencia pasiva, finales inconclusos.
    No por nada la película lleva el sub título "Récit incomplet de divers voyages (Cuenta incompleta de viajes varios)".
    Todo lo que se puede esperar de Haneke, ni más ni menos, para bien o para mal.

    It all began with the humiliation of a beggar.

    Michael Haneke's Code Unknown: Incomplete Tales of Several Journeys is another typical Haneke film. Long scenes that ends abruptly, often in the middle of a sentence shows the audience how the actions of several people changes the life of themselves and of many others, simply by making a choice. Haneke gives no answers, he let's you think for yourself and I really like that in his movies. Juliette Binoche is fantastic as usual and Code Unknown is another great Haneke movie!

    And, at last, you did it, Haneke.

    (All there is to say about this is there in the cover and the title. Don't you ever forget the things you always forget, please)

    Essential.

    Code Unknown is about a group of people related to one minor incident. The film looks awesome. Each scene is short and purposeful. Tension builds to astonishing effect. Available on Netflix Instant, Code Unknown is essential viewing.

    Mira que me gusta Haneke ('Funny Games' y 'Amour' me parecen dos obras maestras), pero 'Código Desconocido' me ha dejado totalmente indiferente. La película tiene varias escenas memorables (como el inici que desencadena todo con la pelea y la mujer vagabunda o la escena del vagón de metro con Juliette Binoche y el moro), pero en líneas generales me ha parecido aburrida y me ha dejado muy frío. Entiendo el mensaje que quiere transmitir la película -los prejuicios sociales/racistas y…

    This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    This is the first film I've seen by Michael Haneke, and while it was technically very impressive I never felt like it pulled me in. The fact that each scene is done in a single take, or very near to a single take, is impressive, as is the overlaying of the drum music in the final sequence, which give a sense of foreboding to things we'd mostly seen happen before. I suppose the intention of the film was to focus…

    La solita ricognizione di Haneke nel non senso della contemporaneità,
    dove gli istinti ferini dell'uomo sono sempre in agguato per colpire
    e uccidere, o ferire a morte.
