哈内克使用的广角镜头最终引导观众进入一种空白的意识水平(Grossvogel, 2007)。他将电影的剧本描述成这样一种方式，即允许观众根据电影中正在发生的事件创造自己的形象。Haneke讲故事的方式有可能成功地操纵和欺骗潜在的观众(Lewis, 1996)。然而,这种讲故事的方式也可以被认为是一个创新的艺术形式或一个新的框架有关工程的观念,让观众体验行动所在,因为他们会考虑在提取解释》的部署,围绕着电影的框架内。Haneke的广角镜头无疑具有独特的叙事风格，提供了独特的电影体验，解构了传统的叙事(Radstone, 2010)。观众可以通过积极参与的方式对电影有自己的理解，而不需要简单地沦为被动。从电影的开始到结尾，每一帧都吸引着潜在的观众，他们共同探索着一个谜团。
Hidden [Cache] is a French psychological thriller that has been written and directed by Michael Haneke and released in 2005. Throughout the film Hidden (Cache), there exist a barrage of narrative structures and deeper meanings. According to Brunnette (2010), Haneke has been recognized for his philosophical movies that evaluate and analyse the western society’s dysfunctional state. Within Hidden (Cache), the director emphasizes upon the gruelling side of trauma, power, guilt and memory as it interacts with some bitter memories of Paris 1961 Massacre. The core theme of the Hidden (Cache) is created on guilt on a collective and personal level. It is mainly built on guilt of a nation (Cousins, 2007). The film has been structured in such a manner that there are very few narratives of the story when compared with the potential narrative of the protagonist. This study discusses how Hidden (Cache) has constructed the act of looking and portrays its importance for the narrative theme and structure.
Haneke’s camera emphasizes on the couple that has been forced apart and not mainly on the origins of tapes and their drawings. Due to this reason, whenever we discover disturbing images of neck images and bloody mouth within the film, it does not indicate that Majid has sent those images. It is due to the brilliant portrayal of Majid’s character (Lewis, 1996). However, there are a few important questions that are unanswered and they have been consistently asked by the audience as a query. They ponder upon the fact that who is the individual that has been sending the tape all over again. One possible explanation could be that George has been himself sending those tapes unconsciously as it allows him to deal with the guilt that he has been consistently facing. However, there would be other important interpretations as well. One important question is that why Georges has to consistently deal with the level of repressed guilt? As it was asserted before, Majid had been sending the tape to George as it would force him to stay across a corner where he would have no other choice but to confess his guilt (Mccormack, 2011). It is mainly due to the lies George has been telling for suppressing others, specifically if an Algerian had ended up living a life of Bourgeois. Director has beautifully portrayed the guilt of the western world where the middle class has consistently progressed over the last few years but the suppressed have been constantly left behind. Within a world that has been highly globalized, it would certainly seem highly relevant as nations do tend to have people from different backgrounds and culture that live together.
The wide shots used by Haneke’s eventually lead the viewers towards a level of blank consciousness (Grossvogel, 2007). He has depicted the screenplay of the film in such a manner that it would allow the viewers to create their own image regarding the ongoing events within the film. It is a possibility that Haneke’s manner of storytelling could successfully manipulate and deceive a potential viewer (Lewis, 1996). However, this mode of storytelling can also be considered as an innovative form of art or a new framework regarding engineering perceptions that would allow the viewers to experience where the action lies as they would ponder upon to extract the interpretation within Haneke’s deployment that surrounds the cinematic framework. Haneke’s wide shot certainly possess a distinctive style of storytelling that provides a unique cinematic experience and deconstructs conventional storytelling (Radstone, 2010). Viewers can have their understanding of the film by the means of active participation and are not required to be merely reduced to passivity. From the beginning of the movie till the very end, each and every frame engages potential spectators as co-investigators of a mystery that unfolds.
