His work often examines social issues, and depicts the feelings of estrangement experienced by individuals in modern society.[1] Haneke has worked in television‚ theatre and cinema. Besides working as a filmmaker, Haneke also teaches film direction at the Film

Academy Vienna. At the 2009 Cannes Film
Film

Life and career[edit] Haneke was born in Munich, Germany, the son of German actor and director Fritz Haneke and Austrian actress Beatrix von Degenschild (de). His stepfather, the composer Alexander Steinbrecher (de), had later married the mother of actor Christoph Waltz.[6] Haneke was raised in the city of Wiener Neustadt, Austria, and later attended the University of Vienna
University of Vienna
to study philosophy, psychology and drama after failing to achieve success in his early attempts in acting and music. After graduating, he became a film critic and from 1967 to 1970 he worked as editor and dramaturg at the southwestern German television station Südwestfunk. He made his debut as a television director in 1974. Haneke's feature film debut was 1989's The Seventh Continent, which served to trace out the violent and bold style that would bloom in later years. Three years later, the controversial Benny's Video
Benny's Video
put Haneke's name on the map. Haneke achieved great success in 2001 with the critically successful French film The Piano Teacher. It won the prestigious Grand Prize at the 2001 Cannes Film
Film
Festival and also won its stars, Benoît Magimel
Benoît Magimel
and Isabelle Huppert, the Best Actor and Actress awards. He has worked with Juliette Binoche

( Code Unknown
Code Unknown
in 2000 and Caché in 2005), after she expressed interest in working with him.[7] Haneke frequently worked with real-life couple Ulrich Mühe and Susanne Lothar
Susanne Lothar
– thrice each. His film, The White Ribbon, premiered at the 2009 Cannes Film
Film
Festival and won the Palme d'Or. The film is set in 1913 and deals with strange incidents in a small town in Northern Germany, depicting an authoritarian, fascist-like atmosphere, where children are subjected to rigid rules and suffer harsh punishments, and where strange deaths occur. In 2012, his film Amour also won the Palme d'Or. Haneke says that films should offer viewers more space for imagination and self-reflection. Films that have too much detail and moral clarity, Haneke says, are used for mindless consumption by their viewers.[8] His 2012 film Amour won the Best Foreign Language Oscar and was nominated for the Best Picture Oscar at the 85th Academy Awards.[5] In 2013 he was the subject of the documentary film Michael H – Profession: Director.[9][10] Stage work[edit] Haneke has directed a number of stage productions in German, which include works by Strindberg, Goethe, and Heinrich von Kleist
Heinrich von Kleist
in Berlin, Munich
Munich
and Vienna. In 2006 he gave his debut as an opera director, staging Mozart's Don Giovanni
Don Giovanni
for the Opéra National de Paris at Palais Garnier
Palais Garnier
when the theater's general manager was Gerard Mortier. In 2012, he was to direct Così fan tutte
Così fan tutte
for the New York City Opera.[11] This production had originally been commissioned by Jürgen Flimm for the Salzburg Festival
Salzburg Festival
2009, but Haneke had to resign due to an illness preventing him from preparing the work. Haneke realized this production at Madrid's Teatro Real
Teatro Real
in 2013.[12] Quotes[edit]

This section is a candidate to be copied to Wikiquote using the Transwiki process.

"My films are intended as polemical statements against the American 'barrel down' cinema and its dis-empowerment of the spectator. They are an appeal for a cinema of insistent questions instead of false (because too quick) answers, for clarifying distance in place of violating closeness, for provocation and dialogue instead of consumption and consensus."

—From " Film
Film
as catharsis".[13]

"Pornography, it seems to me, is no different from war films or propaganda films in that it tries to make the visceral, horrific, or transgressive elements of life consumable. Propaganda is far more pornographic than a home video of two people fucking."[14]

" Film
Film
is 24 lies per second at the service of truth, or at the service of the attempt to find the truth."[15]

"My favourite film-maker of the decade is Abbas Kiarostami. He achieves a simplicity that's so difficult to attain."[16]

"I do think that our perception of reality is fragmentary, and in 20th-century literature, it's totally normal to not describe reality as something whole and completely transportable and explicable. That's been accepted in novels. But genre films always pretend that reality is transportable, which means that it is explicable."[17]

"Consider the pigeon just a pigeon...There are lots of pigeons in Paris."

—On the meaning of pigeons in his movies[18]

Over the last two decades, the director has developed a reputation for stark, often brutal films that place the viewer – sometimes subtly, sometimes explicitly – in the uncomfortable role of accomplice to the crimes playing out on-screen. This approach has made Haneke one of contemporary cinema's most reviled and revered figures, earning him everything from accusations of obscenity to a retrospective at the Museum of Modern Art. Funny Games, the movie Haneke was shooting in New York and Long Island, is the American remake of a highly controversial film by the same name that he directed in 1997.  ^ "2012 Official Selection".
