Ending

In the ending of Funny Games, the surviving member of the family manages to retrieve a shotgun and kills one of the intruders. However, the other intruder manages to grab a remote control and rewinds the film to a point before the violence occurred. They then proceed to kill the family, breaking the fourth wall and leaving the audience with a sense of helplessness and the realization that violence in media is often devoid of consequences.
