The bravura talents and dark wit of Michael Haneke are turned loose in the very real, very current context of the European refugee crisis in his thought-provoking latest. Set in the port city of Calais, Happy End centres around the wealthy Laurent family, who exist in a bourgeois bubble - from octogenarian patriarch Georges (Jean-Louis Trintignant) down to 12-year-old Eve (Fantine Harduin). Their skewed values, deceit and bitter foibles are laid bare against their apparent obliviousness at the struggles of humanity in the nearby 'Jungle'.
