Boston Globe

By Wesley Morris
Maurice Bénichou does the most heartbreaking work in the movie, playing a friend of Georges's. It's a character and a performance I'll have a tough time getting out of my dreams.

Like Hitchcock, only creepier, Haneke slowly cranks up the suspense.

Entertainment Weekly

By Lisa Schwarzbaum
The picture moves with stealth, enjoying its own thriller-ness as hints are laid and mislaid. There's a sense that Hitchcock is hovering in the background and cheering for Auteuil, who musters all his French superstardom to play a man having his mask of blandness torn off.

The Hollywood Reporter

By Kirk Honeycutt
Haneke echoes the theme of Hitchcock's "Rear Window": Moviemaking is basically an act of voyeurism. We secretly examine people's lives in every movie. But in this one, there is a hidden camera, a movie within the movie as it were, forcing us to observe a character along side a mysterious stranger.

Rolling Stone

By Peter Travers
Casts a spell that grips you and won't let go. The film works as a provocation, on a personal and a political level.

New York Daily News

By Jami Bernard
Caché seems at first glance like a straightforward thriller - about a talk-show host being stalked by a technologically savvy blackmailer. But it's really a sly, subversive commentary on conscience, race, class and inequity.

USA Today

By Claudia Puig
Caché is unsettling and tense, even shocking. And its story of enduring tensions between an Algerian immigrant and a well-off French family is particularly timely.

In the important things, in all the ways that really count, Caché is a handsome fraud.
