Caché is an intriguing psychological thriller about a couple who are terrorized by an unknown voyeur who sends them surveillance tapes which hint at the husband’s guilt-ridden childhood memory of an adopted Algerian boy. With its purposefully ambiguous conclusion, Haneke provides his audience with something to discuss in this exploration of France’s hidden national guilt over The Paris massacre of 1961 (Klaus Ming November 2016).
