"Funny Games" is an almost shot-for-shot remake of the late-90's film of the same name by Austrian director Michael Heneke. This time Heneke decided to remake his own film in a US version starring big-ame actors such as Tim Roth and Naomie Watts.
The film is about a well-off couple with son who set off to their cottage for a relaxing vacation. They are soon ambushed by two weird young guys who soon invade their home and torture them.
This is a very violent and very shocking film and should not be watched by anyone put off by scenes of torture. The villans are well-played and Naomie Watts was also great. Tim Roth however was a dissapointment and his character pathetic. The film has an art-house feel to it and can be considered experimental cinema, definitely not conventional stuff. Rent, but only with an open mind.
