Force Majeure (2014)
Updated: Jul 31, 2019
This is fantastic. Very very awkward, but fantastic. My nails are bitten down to the bone, but fantastic. The entire thing is an incredible display of intense control. In the way it's shot, the characters and the way the actors portray them. The pacing and the set-up, the mounting tension, it becomes quite unbearable, until little scenes ease the pressure for a moment. It's like a metaphor for the avalanche at the centre of the story and the chaos it causes... just not the sort of damage you'd expect.
