Abstract

In Caché, an internationally acclaimed psychological thriller and widely hailed as a masterpiece, director Michael Haneke explores postcolonial tensions and memory in modern day France. Georges Laurent, a celebrity journalist, receives surveillance footage of his home and family. Links between Laurent and a childhood friend, a poor Algerian Muslim, forged in the Paris Massacre of October 1961 emerge. Their current differences in wealth, status, and citizenship reveal the tensions between western prosperity and post-colonial oppression.
