Funny Games

  • Would you like to play a game?

It is the start of the holiday. Georg, his wife Anna and their young son Georgie are traveling to their idyllic lakeside house. Their neighbors are already there. They have arranged to play golf together the next day. The weather is superb.

While father and son are rigging up their freshly overhauled sailing boat, Anna prepares supper. Suddenly, Georgie appears in the hallway and tells Anna that there is a stranger at the front door. Peter, a young and evidently well-bred guest of their neighbors, is standing at the door asking Anna for a few eggs. Anna willingly complies with the request. However, Peter's initially polite attitude soon grows inexplicably belligerent and contemptuous. He is later joined by Paul, a pert and insolent young man, who begins to harshly patronize Anna. Taken aback by their audacity, Anna demands them both to leave at once, but they do not - nor do they have any intention to. When Georg returns home, a violent altercation erupts which results in the family becoming the unwilling participants for Paul and Peter's ''funny games''.
