Description:
Ann, George et leur fils Georgie sont en route vers leur résidence secondaire pour y passer l'été. Leurs voisins, Fred et Eva, sont déjà arrivés et ils décident de se retrouver tous le lendemain...

In this shot-by-shot remake of the 1997 artistic exploration of violence, a bourgeoisie family, comprised of wife Anna, husband George, and son Georgie, take their summer vacation at their luxurious lake-front house on Long Island. Shortly after settling in, a young man by the name of Peter shows up at the front door, requesting some eggs to borrow for their neighbor. Peter is quickly joined by another young man, Paul, who comes in to check on Peter. The men seem very polite at first, but soon, however, something about them begins to rub Ann the wrong way: Peter breaks the eggs that Ann gives him twice in a row and accidentally knocks Ann's cell phone into the sink; Peter takes a golf club out front to try out; and, shortly after, their dog is missing. Ann soon gets fed up with them, and asks them to leave. The men's attitude quickly changes, and when George asks the men to leave, Peter grabs a golf club and breaks George's leg with it. The two men take the family hostage and begin to play games that involve physically and mentally torturing them. The games gradually get more life-threatening, and eventually Paul makes a bet with the audience: the family will be dead by 9 am the next morning. The majority of the film focuses on whether the family will survive the night.

    Une famille bourgeoise face à l'extrême violence,tout est fait pour que le processus d'identification se brouille et le spectateur est finalement obligé de s'identifier au bourreau (le beau jeune homme sadique,ça me rappel orange mécanique),car la figure du père de famille protecteur(après celle du fidèle berger allemand) a été détruite avec 1 simple club de golf !.Beaucoup de gens ne l'ont pas supportés et...ont quittés la salle(la scène du"retourapide" est particulièrement savoureuse!)Grande réflexion sur le sentiment de sécurité et celui de toute puissance.SUPER film!

    Nice price. I need to see the original movie. Think the U.S. remake got a little bad mouthed just because it is a remake. There seemed to be a bit of a transitional problem regarding german to english but I still sat on edge nervous during the whole movie. :P
