Wer war Edgar Allan? (1984)


Who Was Edgar Allan? is a television adaptation of Peter Rosei’s post-modern thriller of the same name in which a student travels to Venice to study against the wishes of his father and meets a mysterious figure who calls himself Edgar Allan. Mysterious deaths, all-seeing eyes, strange misunderstandings, and odd father figures are elements which structure Michael Haneke’s television-thriller. The director’s later concerns with media, invisibility, surveillance, and the bourgeois family are already present here.

    An incredible film that I can’t stop thinking about it, and it led me to Cache, which in turn has had me thinking about film in exciting new ways. I can’t thank you enough for this! I’ve always been a huge movie nerd, but this and “Belly of An Architext” have widened my breadth considerably.
