Sample text

The 1989 premiere of The Seventh Continent thus became a cumulative index of the anachronisms and ironies that mark Haneke’s status as auteur and representative of a national cinema. One of three Austrian films in the Cannes program, INTRODUCTION: HANEKE’S ANACHRONISM 11 it introduced Austria to the festival as a young filmmaking nation or, to cite the correlative rhetoric, a nation of young filmmakers (Horwath 1991: 12). Shot and produced in Austria with Austrian money and mostly Austrian actors, and made by a director who lived and had been raised in Austria, The Seventh Continent, on one level, seemed to tell the story of an average Austrian family living in an average Austrian town.

Yet, this codification is revealed as being mere sheen. The ethical dilemmas raised by the story suggest that the position of the Brunners in this scenario is rather closer to that of conventional, that is, private and personally motivated, consumers, whose choice of the boy is influenced by the same factors that would make them select a particular toy brand or a pet. It is contingent on psychological impulses, individual responses to marketing strategies (not the least those of Marian himself, who shrewdly understands that “going on TV” will increase his chances of finding new parents), as well as on their personal tastes, and the way the medium, which is now basically a commercial medium, can deliver consumers to specific products, whereby it eclipses other products in the process.

It reveals something about the construction of the trilogy’s implied spectator. It has often been stated that Haneke became rather disillusioned with television as an artistic medium – due to public television’s increasing unwillingness to ignore the ratings factor and produce artistically challenging films. But his first theatrical feature was still written for TV and with TV viewers in mind. Not the kinds of viewers who became known as channel surfers, but the TV viewers who considered themselves selective and demanding viewers, and who had been “abandoned” by TV in the same way Haneke felt he had been abandoned by TV as a demanding artist.
