you can read this film as an exploration of guilt and privilege as it applies to a man's unwillingness to accept his part in both and how that man acts as a synecdoche for all of France, but i personally am choosing to read it as a story about one fucked up couple that was still using their VCR in 2005 and how their refusal to simply not watch VHS tapes led to ruin. haneke's in the pocket of big HD-DVD
