Entertainment Reviews:

Los Angeles Times - 12/30/2009
"[T]ense, provocative and unnerving....[The film] could be considered a culmination of this difficult director's brilliant career."
Entertainment Weekly - 01/08/2010
"Shot in vivid black and white, the movie is like VILLAGE OF THE DAMNED directed by Ingmar Bergman..." -- Grade: B-
New York Times - 12/30/2009
"[Haneke] uses the sharp elegance of Christian Berger's monochrome cinematography, the grammatical precision of old-fashioned speech and the pageantry of period drama to lull and also to inflame the audience's expectations."
A.V. Club - 12/30/2009
"Shot with dry discipline in striking black and white, the deliberately paced, consistently unnerving film invites viewers into every corner of its town..." -- Grade: A
USA Today - 01/07/2010
"THE WHITE ROOM is an artful examination of a small town and small-mindedness and the potential for full-blown, large-scale evil."
Wall Street Journal - 01/08/2010
"[S]evere and eerily beautiful....Mr. Haneke's film is accessible, though its pace is deliberate and its affect muted."
Rolling Stone - 01/21/2010
3.5 stars out of 4 -- "Shot in stunning black-and-white by the gifted Christian Berger, THE WHITE RIBBON is a toxic blossom of images that burn into your memory..."
Movieline - 12/31/2009
"Everything about the film's masterfully executed aesthetic suggests harmony, order, the absence of extremes, exquisite deliberation...director Michael Haneke teases dread and uncertainty from classical form."
Chicago Sun-Times - 01/13/2010
4 stars out of 4 -- "The film is visually masterful....THE WHITE RIBBON tells a simple story in a village about little people and suggests that we must find a balance between fear and security."
Uncut - 11/30/2009
4 stars out of 5 -- "Its lack of resolution is one reason the movie lingers, along with its stunning cinematography and unsettling performances, particularly from the children at the movie's heart."

Product Description:

Controversy-courting director Michael Haneke (CACHÉ) earned the Palm d'Or at Cannes in 2009 for this arresting drama set just before World War I. In a small German village, a number of unexplained accidents beset the schoolchildren and their parents. Though they at first appear coincidental, it begins to seem that they are not, in fact, accidents at all.
