"The White Ribbon is like Heimat, but not as good. It pretends that it has something important to say about pre-war Germany, but it hasn't. The pre-war setting is simply an excuse for Haneke to indulge his predeliction for nasty sadistic scenes. I thought he had grown out of that when he made Hidden, but it seems not. My fellow sceptics should take heart from the review in Sight & Sound where HK Miller cuts through the pretentiousness to expose the cold egotism underneath."
