A village in Protestant northern Germany, 1913-1914. On the eve of World War I. The story of the children and teenagers of a church and school choir run by the village schoolteacher and their families; the Baron, the steward, the pastor, the doctor, the midwife, the tenant farmers. Strange accidents occur and gradually assume the characteristics of a punishment ritual. Who could be responsible for such bizarre transgressions? Acclaimed director Michael Haneke won the Palme dOr at the 2009 Cannes Film Festival for what is considered to be an instant classic of world cinema. The White Ribbon is Haneke's masterpiece and a film that will be talked about for years to come.
