Isabelle Huppert: Performance as Rebirth


The time preceding the apocalypse is known in Germanic mythology as the time of the wolves. Fleeing a disaster, a middle-class family travel to their countryside holiday home, believing themselves to be escaping the consequences of the general state of chaos, but they find it occupied by strangers.

Our take

We complete the double feature devoted to Isabelle Huppert with this journey into the dark side of humanity. After first working with Michael Haneke—and winning Best Actress in Cannes—on The Piano Teacher, she teamed up with him again for this eerie and evocative tale of post-apocalyptic survival.
