Our take

The incisive and always polarizing Michael Haneke made his first film in France with this fragmentary study of violence and racism in the streets of Paris. Code Unknown finds Binoche, at her most raw and immediate, playing an actor in an exactingly piercing interrogation of Europe’s ruling class.
