“All around us, the world, and we, in its midst, blind” could be the epigram for the latest from filmmaker Michael Haneke (Amour), who returns to skewer the bourgeoisie in a sardonic drama about the wealthy and dysfunctional Laurent family. Isabelle Huppert stars as Anne, who has taken charge of the family’s Calais estate and their powerful construction company that may soon be on the rocks. Jean-Louis Trintignant is her aging father Georges, who is suffering from incipient dementia. Co-starring Matthieu Kassovitz and Toby Jones, this dark family portrait contrasts the Laurents with the lives of their Moroccan servants, as well as the African migrants who are crowding the streets of Calais. Rated R. In French with English subtitles and some English. (Austria/France 2017) 107 min.
