Michael Haneke's The Seventh Continent

What a BLEAK movie! It made even me feel bad about having seen a feel-bad movie. The Piano Teacher (yes that one, with Isabelle Huppert) now looks like a date movie in comparison. More later when I get over the feeling :(

This writer says:
Haneke's debut, a calm depiction of a Viennese family who form a suicide pact, is not easy viewing, but, as Adam Bingham argues, the film is optimistic in its refusal to console its audience.

Optimistic? Really?
