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.
Peter Travers ABC News - "Prepare to be wowed by one of the best movies of the year, starring a sensational Sandra Hüller (heads up, Oscar) in Justine Triet’s forensic anatomy of a marriage told through the compulsively watchable story of a wife on trial for killing her husband."
David Fear Rolling Stone - "Though some may come for the murder mystery, it’s Triet’s way of using that genre to get at deeper notions of love turning to hate, and tiny marital fissures that turn into chasms, that really makes this something close to an anti-romantic masterpiece."
Bilge Ebiri New York Magazine - "It has both suspense and intellectual ambition; plot revelations don’t just send the story in new directions, they expand the film’s cultural scope."
Lindsay Barr Associated Press - "It seems that Anatomy of a Fall might be the new litmus test for modern relationships. See it with a romantic partner at your own risk. But, from my perch, this is one that’s worth the debate(s) it provokes.
Anthony Lane New Yorker - "You should arrange to watch it at the cinema with your most captious friends...so that you can thrash things out over dinner—fondue, I’d suggest, for that handy whiff of bubbling Alpine chaos."
