Both films directed by Michael Haneke. which one do you prefer?
Even though its a shot by shot remake, somehow the new one seems more mature, and the performances (specially Watts-Pitt) are beyond amazing, when the other one was lacking in that department.
I think the 2007 version is easily Haneke’s worst film. I get why he’d want to retread that territory with a flashier American production, but it just seemed like it lacked the original’s edge (which tends to be the case when you’re literally just repeating yourself).
