71 Fragmente einer Chronologie des Zufalls (71 Fragments of a Chronology of Chance)

Edition 1994
100' - 1994 - Drama - Dialogue: German, English, Romanian
Director: Michael Haneke With: Gabriel Cosmin Urdes, Lukas Miko, Otto Grünmandl
1993 Christmas' eve. A 19-year-old student kills several people he did not know at all with no apparent motive. "My task was to establish a structure of questions, to avoid providing answers and in doing so to enable a variety of conflicting interpretations. Please do allow me not to go against these premises by giving descriptions in a résumé - which can also be interpreted. This movie is the last part of a trilogy, whose subject is my country's emotional glaciation. The trilogy's motto is a sentence from Pascal: "Vous êtes embarqués". (Michael Haneke)
