Anatomy of a Fall
“The most gripping film I’ve seen this year! I’ve thought about it every day since watching, it’s a film that keeps offering more to think about even weeks after you’ve seen it. The camerawork and Sandra Hüller’s incredible performance make it painfully realistic. You’ll be completely immersed in the film’s unsettling world with only the stunning alps for light relief.”
Martha Boyd,Digital Marketing Coordinator
For the past year, Sandra, her husband Samuel, and their eleven-year-old son Daniel have lived a secluded life in a remote town in the French Alps. When Samuel is found dead in the snow below their chalet, the police question whether he was murdered or committed suicide. Samuel's suspicious death is presumed murder, and Sandra becomes the main suspect.
What follows is not just an investigation into the circumstances of Samuel's death but an unsettling psychological journey into the depths of Sandra and Samuel's conflicted relationship.
The screenings on Saturday 18th November at 14:00 and Wednesday 22nd at 20:00 will include an 18min pre-recorded Q&A with director Justine Triet and star Sandra Hüller.
“This whole film has a wizardry to it which you’ll be thinking about for days, to the internal beat of those steel drums, boinging over and over.”Tim Robey, The Telegraph
“Justine Triet’s Cannes-winning tale of a writer dealing with her husband’s death is, simply put, one of the best movies about good marriages gone bad ever made”David Fear, Rolling Stone
“If Marriage Story (2019) were a murder trial, it might look a little like Anatomy of a Fall, Justine Triet’s gripping, sharply intelligent psychological drama, which collects itself in fizzing arcs of strange electricity around a brilliant, edgy but elusive Sandra Hüller.”Jessica Kiang, Sight & Sound
