I saw Haneke's "The Piano Teacher" a few months ago, and adored it. Mostly cause of Issabel Huppert though. And "Funny Games" is truly a disturbing and shocking piece of work. But to respond to the last reply, while I agree that European films do not hold back as much most of the time in their portrayal of realism on screen, but no European films has been as disturbing or psychologically horrifying as John McNaughton's "Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer". At least IMO.
