Force Majeure (2014)
Sunday 21st June 2015
A critical favourite at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival, where it took the Jury Prize in the Un Certain Regard category, Force Majeure, released on DVD and Blu-ray by Artificial Eye on 29th June 2015, is a wickedly funny and precisely-observed black comedy that marks Ruben Östlund as one of Europe's most piercingly intelligent filmmakers.
A model Swedish family - handsome businessman Tomas, his wife Ebba and their two beautiful children - are on a skiing holiday at a high-end resort in the French Alps. The sun is shining and the slopes are spectacular, but during lunch at a mountainside restaurant, an avalanche suddenly bears down on the happy diners.
With people fleeing in all directions and his wife and children in a state of panic, Tomas makes a decision that will shake his marriage to its core and leave him struggling to reclaim his role as family patriarch.
