Filmmaker Michael Haneke won the Palme D'Or at Cannes and a Golden Globe for Best Foreign Film for The White Ribbon
, an eerie black-and-white exploration of the roots of Nazi terror. Set in a farming village in Germany, members of children's choir fall victim to bizarre accidents. Peter Bradshaw
has it exactly right: "This is a profoundly disquieting movie, superbly acted and directed. Its sinister riddle glitters more fiercely each time I watch it."
