"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
