Example text

INTRODUCTION: HANEKE’S ANACHRONISM 27 They constitute the filmmaker as post-new wave, post-national, post-metaphysical craftsman, whose auteurism manifests itself in film historical knowledge, in consummate professionalism, and in artistic bravado – by which is meant the ability to demonstrate virtuoso command of the medium and to deliver tour-de-force cinematic experiences (Elsaesser 2005: 51). In Haneke’s case, it was particularly the Cannes International Film Festival that became a highly propitious forum for defining and promoting the auteur’s evolving qualities, at the same time that it helped create his persona as one of the last greats.

Their ideologically and historiographically obfuscating effect can be read as Haneke’s interpretation of Adorno’s culture industry argument. At the same time, however, Haneke’s own dialectical use of film and of cinema history in Fraulein – by juxtaposing its protagonist’s jouissance to post-war broken masculinity (see Nagl, this volume) even when she is identified as an instrument in disseminating illusion),21 by abruptly switching from black-and-white to color stock in order to mark this illusionism, and by ending with an excerpt from the Nazi spectacle Münchhausen ( Josef von Báky, 1943, starring Albers and filmed in color) – indicates Haneke’s conviction that film is a (however limited) tool for critical reflection.

It finds renewed focus through Haneke’s interrogation of the ethics of parenting, which his films further link to an investigation of the decline of institutions of learning. Their failure, in turn, points to a crisis of pedagogy and signals deeper impoverishments on the level of the cultural imaginary. 28 The Seventh Continent’s child protagonist, Evi, rebels against the world’s indifference by claiming to have lost her ability to see, which prompts insensitivity and indignance from her teacher and triggers punishment from her mother.
