Director: Michael Haneke
Cinematographer: Christian Berger
Aside from its meticulously woven story and its meditative rural setting, the other thing that is worth checking out in The White Ribbon is its Bergmanesque cinematography.
Christian Berger is said to have drawn inspiration from the works of Sven Nykvist, Ingmar Bergman's cinematographer.
(If you like crappy American movies, you'll get that joke.)
Bergman's Winter Light? :P
The crucifix is perfectly positioned.
Hungry tiny boy.
The door and its "eyes."
Looks like a scene from a horror movie.
Staircase to hell.
The village life.
This particular shot kinda reminds me of John Ford's The Searchers.
