Performers, Cast and Crew:
Entertainment Weekly - 02/01/2006
"[A] fabulously upsetting, doesn't-leave-your-head thriller....The picture moves with stealth, enjoying its own thriller-ness as hints are laid and mislaid." -- Grade: A
USA Today - 12/23/2005
"[U]nsettling and tense, even shocking. And its story of enduring tensions between an Algerian immigrant and a well-off French family is particularly timely."
Los Angeles Times - 12/23/2005
"[T]aut, terse, brisk and immediately engaging....This is provocative filmmaking at its finest, boasting portrayals that are impeccable because they are so completely natural."
New York Times - 01/06/2006
"[A] tense, politically tinged psychological thriller about vengeance and injustice."
Movieline's Hollywood Life - 01/01/2006
"[T]his beautifully controlled, gripping film benefits from the pitch-perfect performances of Daniel Auteuil and Juliette Binoche."
Uncut - 02/01/2006
"Daniel Auteuil and Juliette Binoche are masterful....It's brilliantly tense, original and hypnotic."
Sight and Sound - 02/01/2006
"HIDDEN is really the latest of Haneke's portraits of the bourgeois European family and its discontents....Haneke's most rigorous yet."
Total Film - 07/01/2006
5 stars out of 5 -- "HIDDEN's story is tight, its characters compulsive....[Haneke] has a point, and it's chilling and beautifully made."
Premiere - 09/01/2006
4 stars out of 4 -- "It's a moral and political allegory wrapped in the husk of a suspense thriller, and Haneke makes their nightmares ours by hiding a few puzzle pieces."
Empire - 01/01/2008
5 stars out of 5 -- "[A] masterpiece....[With an] intentionally cryptic narrative. It's not called HIDDEN for nothing."
