Next film to be reviewed: ANATOMY OF A FALL
Anatomy Of A Fall
Justine Triet's gripping and provocative Palme d’Or winning (Best Film award at Cannes Film Festival) thriller puts the intimate complexities of a couple’s failing marriage on trial.
For the past year, Sandra (Sandra Hüller), a German writer, her French husband Samuel (Samuel Theis), and their eleven-year-old son Daniel (Milo Machado Graner) have lived a secluded life in a remote town in the French Alps. When Samuel is found dead in the snow below their chalet, the police question whether he committed suicide or was killed. Samuel’s death is treated as suspicious, and Sandra becomes the main suspect. Little by little the trial becomes not just an investigation of the circumstances of Samuel’s death, but an unsettling psychological journey into the depths of Sandra and Samuel’s conflicted relationship.
