The Seventh Continent

1989 Rated NR 1hr 44m

Austrian director Michael Haneke trains a critical lens on postmodern alienation in this disquieting drama based on a true story. When young Eva Schober (Leni Tanzer) inexplicably feigns blindness at school, the incident brings to the surface the emotional fissure in her middle-class family's humdrum existence. But as Eva and her parents (Dieter Berner and Birgit Doll) try to transcend their vacuous, pedestrian lives, the family slowly unravels.
