Austrian filmmaker and social critic Creator/MichaelHaneke made ''Funny Games'' in 1997, then remade an English-language version ten years later, [[ShotForShotRemake shot for shot]].

Paul gives one of these to the camera just before Ann/Anna discovers where he's hidden the dog. It's the first time he breaks the fourth wall. In the original, he winks, although in the remake he just stares.
** He also gives another one to the camera at the very end of the film.
