It's been called the first great film of the 21st century by arty tv presenter Mark Lawson (and not just because the central character is an arty tv presenter, he insists )
Not sure about that, but...

"Cach" is a French film, it follows a married couple searching for the source of a bunch of mysterious video tapes that keep getting left on their porch, the delivered cassettes get more personal by the day, creating disruption and unbalance in the family's life.Thoughts: After previously watching "Funny Games" and "Benny's Video", I had no doubt in my mind that I would dislike "Cach" just as much as I disliked the former two, considering they are all directed by the same person, fortunately, Michael Haneke proved me wrong.Even though the audience is constantly teased by the mystery of the surveillance footage and its origins, that isn't the intended main focus of the film, in fact, knowing the identity of the sender becomes irrelevant by the end of it all.
Of course this is the whole point and while some filmmakers annoy me with this style of storytelling, thus far Haneke has always given me enough answers in his film to where I appreciate the ambiguity.
