Michael Haneke documentary puts director in the spotlight

20 June 2013 Last updated at 01:24 BST

Austrian filmmaker Michael Haneke is widely regarded as one of Europe's great directors - he won an Oscar earlier this year for his film Amour which substantially raised his profile.

The director is well known for his reluctance to interpret his own work but now a documentary has been doing the rounds at festivals that provides a close study of his work.

Talking Movies' Tom Brook reports.

Talking Movies is broadcast on BBC World News on Saturday at 13:30 GMT and Sunday at 00:30, 07:30 and 20:30 GMT.
