Our take

The most divisive film from one of the most divisive filmmakers, Time of the Wolf expands Michael Haneke’s reach into post-apocalyptic territory for a sci-fi-tinged drama as tense and provocative as anything he’s done. Starring the Austrian auteur’s frequent collaborator Isabelle Huppert.
