On a bustling Paris streetcorner, four separate lives intersect, setting into motion a stunning film by acclaimed filmmaker, Michael Haneke. Carefully interweaving the stories of Anne, a promising actress, her photojournalist boyfriend Georges, a young teacher of African descent and a Romanian illegal immigrant, Haneke crafts a compelling portrait of life in a fractured, lonely world. As these divergent stories gradually unfold, the seemingly unrelated lives prove to have very much in common, as they struggle for love and acceptance in a society of locked doors and cold stares.

Le temps du loup = Time of the wolf by Michael Haneke( Visual )

"An extremely timely and prescient piece of social commentary, Time of the Wolf follows a family's difficult journey immediately after an unknown apocalyptic event. Haneke never tells us what happened, or where, or when, but instead puts us directly into the terrifying aftermath, with all of its confusion, uncertainty, and danger. As all social laws and codes are suddenly overturned, Heneke asks us to find our own way through. Time of the Wolf is Haneke's most intense film, and also his most hopeful."--Container
