Matthieu Kassovitz Also In The CastRemember when Michael Haneke's masterful "Caché" hit audiences in the gut circa 2005? Looking back, the film seems to be the perfect culmination of all of the filmmaker's themes and aesthetic, a fascination of a video-obsessed culture prone to violent outbursts with the patient, brooding style he had been honing for more than a decade. It was also the second collaboration with actress Juliette Binoche, a brilliant performer who began seeking out alliances with auteurs in the early oughts ("Flight of the Red Balloon" with Hsiao-hsien Hou, "Summer Hours" with Olivier Assayas, and "Certified Copy" with Abbas Kiarostami). However, those of us already in tune with the Haneke oeuvre and la Binoche's excellence were more surprised by the leading performance of the film - Daniel Auteuil.

But it looks like the helmer is coming back in a big way as the stars seem to be lining up for his next project, the topical financial world drama "Le Captial."
