Storyline

A Swedish family travels to the French Alps to enjoy a few days of skiing. The sun is shining and the slopes are spectacular but, during a lunch at a mountainside restaurant, an avalanche turns everything upside down. With diners fleeing in all directions, mother Ebba calls for her husband Tomas as she tries to protect their children. Tomas, meanwhile, is running for his life... The anticipated disaster failed to occur, and yet the family's world has been shaken to its core, a question mark hanging over their father in particular. Tomas and Ebba's marriage now hangs in the balance as Tomas struggles desperately to reclaim his role as family patriarch. Written by Cannes Film Festival

Force Majeure
2 February 2015 | by ArgemalucoSee all my reviews

Force Majeure is a paused and systematic character study principally integrated by bitter conversations, uncomfortable moments and the inclement dissection of a marriage in trouble, analyzing the sudden change a casual event (in this case, an avalanche) can provoke on something which seemed so strong and safe. The result is moderately interesting... and occasionally boring. There undoubtedly are provocative ideas in this film; but there's also some frustration due to its excessively slow rhythm and the obstinacy from some characters. Director and screenwriter Ruben Östlund must have been too proud of his work, so therefore, he didn't want to leave even one minute out of the long two hours this film lasts. On the positive side, the performances are excellent and the alpine settings are truly impressive (pity that we spend so much time inside the hotel). Force Majeure examines multiple aspects of a couple: as a husband and wife, as parents, and as compatible adults, even though they don't lack of some fundamental differences which might indicate a big separation in their personal ideology. As I said on the beginning of this commentary: moderately interesting content, but presented in a way which occasionally challenges the patience and attention from the audience. Force Majeure didn't leave me very satisfied, but I don't regret having watched it, and I think I can give it a slight recommendation.
