Film Series: Force Majeure

2014. Sweden. Dir: Ruben Östlund. With Johannes Kuhnke. 118 min.

A picture-perfect Swedish family enjoy their holiday at a gorgeous Alpine ski resort – that is, until the father’s dubious actions during a sudden incident shakes the family balance. With an unexpectedly keen ability to find bleak humor amidst the domestic drama, Östlund coolly observes how a minor annoyance can slowly metastasize into a full-blown marital crisis.
