  • Code Unknown was the first French-language film made by Michael Haneke. Its plot revolves around Jean, who comes to Paris from the country in search of his brother, a war photographer, but only finds his girlfriend Anne, an actress. Irritated, he throws a piece of paper at a homeless Romanian woman begging in the street. She is defended by Amadou, a teacher at the institute for the deaf. Jean’s humiliating gesture becomes the thread that links the various storylines. The film won the Prize of the Ecumenical Jury in Cannes.
