Example text

While this process was contingent on the specific national histories of the medium,29 it clearly came to assume a trans-European dynamic. Some broader characteristics of this transition are glossed in exemplary form in 71 Fragments’ depiction of the Brunners, the couple that adopt Marian. After watching Marian’s Romanian refugee story on the news, they spring into action and seek him out. Their decision thus appears to have a democratic, humanitarian, and public sphere-oriented character. Their construction as viewers codifies them as “socially responsible” citizens, except that the social is now no longer the realm of the nation but of Europe.

The more traditional of these two topics, a civilizational critique coupled with a focus on children, has been a staple of art cinema since Italian neo-realism. 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.

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.
