Personal Quote:

Whatever story you tell, there's already been one like it. So how do you have a deeper impact on the viewer? One of the possibilities is the rhythm, which is what film is actually all about. It's much closer to music than to literature. See more »

Trivia:

Between 2012 and 2015, he had been working on 'Flashmob', a movie about on-line communities . It has been suggested that the project was canceled because funding for the film fell through. Haneke himself has stated that the main reason for abandoning the film was that the actress he had in mind for the lead role wasn't available. See more »
