Funny Games

We’ve watched this movie because it was presented to us as a very violent home invasion. Well, I haven’t seen such a softcore movie in ages… The violent scenes are hidden, not once do you see a person being stabbed or bludgeoned. You hear the screams, you see the blood splatters, but all violence is intentionally hidden.

Not only was it too soft, but it was also too slow. So slow that, sometimes, I wondered if I didn’t hit the pause button by accident. I think that they tried to privilege an ambiance of anguish over violence, but it only ended up being boring and slow.
