Quote from: Vassilis KroustallisThe film employs its Haneke touch in the way its main characters are meant to endure all and still be intimate to each other.
QuoteIncidentally, he was "not touched," stressed Michael Haneke, somewhat breathlessly , a good two weeks ago at the Austrian Film Museum, when, at the start of his Vienna retrospective, he was explaining the genesis of his cinema debut "The Seventh Continent" (1989). He spoke through the antivirus mask, audibly struggling, but he didn't like the idea of ��being taken for sentimental, even touched, by a certain shortness of breath.[...]It's a pity that Haneke's next big step, probably also due to the pressure of a pandemic cultural landscape, may have already failed for good. The dystopian ten-part series that Haneke wrote, planned and is said to have financed to a large extent in 2018/19 under the title "Kelvin's Book" would have meant the director's return to a fundamentally changed television. His last TV production, an adaptation of Kafka's fragmentary novel "The Castle", was 25 years ago.
