Force Majeure

Director: Ruben Östlund

Country: Sweden/Norway/Denmark/France

An impulsive decision in a moment of crisis drives a wedge between a husband and wife, in Ruben Östlund’s gripping moral drama which became a critical sensation at Cannes 2014.

A critical hit at Cannes 2014, Ruben Östlund’s latest film confirms the Swedish director as one of the most daring and audacious filmmakers to emerge in the last decade. On a family skiing vacation in the French Alps, Tomas (Johannes Bah Kuhnke) and Ebba (Lisa Loven Kongsli) are enjoying lunch with their two children, when the sudden, shocking threat of an avalanche prompts an impulsive — and perhaps unforgivable — reaction from Tomas. Although in the event life and limb are preserved, the marriage bond between Tomas and Lisa may be shattered forever, and the film grippingly and incisively measures the fallout from Tomas’ fateful act. Replete with bravura sequences — from the frighteningly realistic avalanche scene to the incredibly extended crying jag that teeters between the harrowing and the hilarious — Force Majeure is “an unsettling psychological thriller … visually stunning [and emotionally perceptive” (Peter Debruge, Variety).
