TL;DR: In this paper, the authors identify a number of key issues within this new perception of urban geometry, and investigates their considerable significance for contemporary European cinema, with specific reference to the articulation of filmic space and the fragmentation of narrative form.
Abstract: Within the postmodern understanding of the centrality of space to filmic narrative, it is now possible to discern new developments that reflect both the contradictory tensions of globalization, and the widespread obsession with theories of chaos, chance, and networks. Nowhere are these changes more acutely revealed than in ‘fractal’ films, filmic portrayals of urban space which is no longer shaped by the linear mappings of modernity, but is posited as both entirely random and yet at the same time structured by complexity, simultaneity, and violent encounters. This paper identifies a number of key issues within this new perception of urban geometry, and investigates their considerable significance for contemporary European cinema, with specific reference to the articulation of filmic space and the fragmentation of narrative form. It concludes by considering the implication of these findings for contemporary readings of European identity. Supporting evidence is drawn from a range of films including:...

TL;DR: The films of the Austrian director, Michael Haneke, provide an austere meditation on possible problems with the concept of the domestic environment as a space of safety as mentioned in this paper, and they are particularly aimed at the comparatively wealthy bourgeoisie, but it is in his ambiguous presentation of hope that we might see the possibility, however slight, of redemption.
Abstract: The films of the Austrian director, Michael Haneke, provide an austere meditation on possible problems with the concept of the domestic environment as a space of safety. Narratives of domestic dispute often position the violence of such abuse as an aberration, but Haneke indicates that the home is fundamentally predicated on aggression and fear rather than kindness and security. In order to explore this idea as it is worked through in his films, it will be useful to revisit Freud's formulation of the unheimlich. Haneke's criticisms are particularly aimed at the comparatively wealthy bourgeoisie, but it is in his ambiguous presentation of hope that we might perhaps see the possibility, however slight, of redemption. This paper discusses Haneke's films within the so-called genre of the Art House' film and within the context of the Heimat film genre—Haneke introduces an uncanny and uncomfortable element into each of these homely categories. Films discussed include: Code Unknown, The Pianist, The Time...
