Barossa Film Club presents its movie for June, the award-winning French film 'Caché (Hidden)' starring Juliette Binoche and Daniel Auteuil.

Released in 2005, the director was Michael Haneke who won the Best Director award at the 2005 Cannes Film Festival, and the film won best foreign film at the Film Critics of Australia Awards in 2006.

The story is of the paranoia which grips a bourgeois European family when a series of menacing videotapes begin turning up on their doorstep in director Michael Haneke's dark drama.

From the outside, Georges (Daniel Auteuil), Anne (Juliette Binoche), and son Pierrot (Lester Makedonsky) are the typical middle-class European family.

However, a series of mysterious videotapes accompanied by morbid drawings reveal that someone has been monitoring their house, Georges begins to suspect that his past has come back to haunt him.

It was during France's occupation of Algeria that Georges wronged a young Algerian boy named Majid (Maurice Bénichou), and as the enraged father and husband begins tracking down his former friend, the line between victim and predator becomes increasingly blurred.

'Caché' will screen at the Faith College Wine Centre this Friday, June 21.

The evening begins with a short movie at 7.30pm, with a break for refreshments and then the main feature.

Admittance is free for members of the Barossa Film Club and membership is obtainable at the door.
