Force Majeure

Force Majeure

Directed by Ruben Ostlund

This wickedly funny and precisely observed psychodrama tells the story of a model Swedish family—handsome businessman Tomas, his willowy wife Ebba and their two blond children— on a skiing holiday in the French Alps. The sun is shining and the slopes are spectacular but during a 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.

Cinematography was exquisite with great sound and editing - visually poetic. The story line was ok but the dialogue/script was flat and lacking. End result a beautiful yet shallow film.

An interesting film with lots of nice tidbits - and a decent conversation on polyamory - and great cinematography. I enjoyed it, but I don't know why.
