Michael Haneke's "Code Inconnu" is a film about the people we pass on the street everyday and the small, seemingly insignificant events that can link their lives and stories together. On a crowded street in Paris a passer by hands a crumpled scrap of paper to a woman begging on the street. This woman and this instance is the window into the lives of a young actress, her war photographer boyfriend, his family, a man who teaches music to deaf students, his father who came from Africa and became a cabdriver and many others who lives are linked by this singular, simple moment in time.
