Mi sento inquieta, non riesco a stare ferma, quindi vado nello studio. A fare cosa ancora non so. Fisso lo scaffale, sposto i libri, come se cercassi qualcosa, e sto quasi cominciando a innervosirmi, quando intravedo una scatola di legno scuro. È un tuffo al cuore.

Example text

Are these images traumatic? It is their code that Georges the talk show host struggles to know, struggles to put into words. Coda Sadomasochism is centrally present in most of Haneke’s films—beginning with his first feature film, The Seventh Continent, moving through Benny’s Video, 71 Fragments, The Castle, Funny Games, Time of the Wolf, as well as Caché, and it is the center of attention in The Piano Teacher, a virtual case study of this emotional double bind. Sadomasochism, of course, is the mindset described in Powell’s Peeping Tom as well.

And in so doing, I would like to propose, he offers us a crucial distinction for the consideration of violence in the work of Michael Haneke. Above all else, Haneke’s work is violent. It would be quite simple to describe Haneke as an immoral sadist who relishes in the desecration of the body as a form of entertainment. Of course, Haneke does not make a 35 b r ia n p r i c e spectacle of violence; its appearance occurs in a phenomenological frame. It tends toward the blunt muteness of its actual occurrence in the world.

18 Thus, even denotation ultimately bears connotation within. Is it possible that the scene captured by Kertész—a blind, old violinist led over a dirt road by a child—is conjured up in Haneke’s film by the Romanian woman and her grandson, walking along a dirt road enveloped in dust? Haneke’s film also seems to revel in the affective charge of the photographic, the filmic image—indeed, in any kind of image at all, the digital included. Thus, even if the filmic image is without explanatory power, it nevertheless has the power to move us.
