The White Ribbon

A Feature film by Michael Haneke

Release in France : 21/10/2009

    Synopsis

    A village in Protestant northern Germany.

    1913/1914. On the eve of the First World War.

    The story of children and adolescents of a choir, directed by the village teacher, and their families: the baron, steward, minister, doctor, midwife, and farmers.

    Strange accidents occur and, little by little, take on the aspect of a punitive ritual. What is lurking behind these unsettling incidents?
