Well, the 2009 Festival de Cannes wrapped up, and the winner of the prestigious Palme d’Or was not, in fact, Lars von Trier‘s Willem Dafoe’s Bare Ass and Mutilated Balls. Nay, the honor went to Michael Haneke‘s The White Ribbon (Das weiße Band), a film about the strange happenings in 1913 at a German school dealing with ritual punishment. Haneke also directed the torture film, Funny Games. By our estimates, this makes him the German Judd Apatow.
Check out the other clip from the film – conveniently translated into English for those of us who don’t sprechen ze Deutsch, if you know what I mean. And if you do, you sprechen ze Deutsch, so just make sure your speakers are on.
