Force Majeure
director:
Ruben Ostlund
cast:
Johannes Kuhnke, Lisa Loven Kongsli, Clara Wettergren

A picturesque family vacation in the French Alps. Shining sun, glistening slopes, smiling faces. But then, an avalanche! People scatter; a wife calls out for her husband; he runs away. The avalanche never comes, and one family deals with the aftermath of cowardice in the face of disaster. Critically acclaimed and universally lauded as a smart and biting black comedy, “Force Majeure is both funny and sad, often in the same glance-averted instant.” As the Chicago Tribune recommends, “See it with someone you’d trust to stick around in an avalanche.”
