SAVAGE SATIRES: A RUBEN ÖSTLUND DOUBLE BILL

Synopsis

A Swedish family travels to enjoy a few days of skiing. The slopes are spectacular but, during a lunch at a mountainside restaurant, an avalanche turns everything upside down. Tomas and Ebba’s marriage now hangs in the balance as Tomas struggles desperately to reclaim his role as family patriarch.

Our take

Before he won his Palme d’Or for The Square, Ruben Östlund sparked fervor in the festival’s Un Certain Regard section with the marriage drama Force Majeure. Provocative, insightful and at times excruciating—a frequently hilarious study of instinct, etiquette, and a family man’s masculinity.
