FORCE MAJEURE dir. Ruben Östlund depicts a Swedish family of four on a skiing holiday in the French Alps. During a sudden avalanche, the cheery film takes a melancholic twist when the father makes for his own escape and risks the safety of his wife and two children. You may recognize the plot from the recent American adaptation/remake “Downhill” (2020) starring Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Will Ferrell.

See you at the movies !!
