(Some of) The Best of 2014Repertory Series Archive

Force Majeure

Buy Tickets

(Turist, 2014) dir Ruben Östlund w/Johannes Kuhnke, Lisa Loven Kongsli, Clara Wettergren, Vincent Wettergren [118 min; Digital]
In Swedish, English, French, and Norwegian with English subtitles.
This wickedly funny and precisely observed psychodrama tells the story of a model Swedish family on a skiing holiday in the French Alps. The sun is shining and the slopes are spectacular but, when an avalanche suddenly bears down on them, the father makes a decision that will leave him struggling to reclaim his role as family patriarch.


★★★★ “‘Force Majeure’ is both funny and sad, often in the same glance-averted instant. See it with someone you’d trust to stick around in an avalanche. It’s one of the highlights of 2014.” – Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune

★★★★ “‘Force Majeure’ leaves the audience squirming – in all the very best ways.” – Ann Hornaday, Washington Post

“Ostlund is a gifted creator of malignant ambience, which he masterfully uses to keep his audience wound tight and unsure whether the payoff in catastrophe will be physical, emotional or both.” – Ella Taylor, NPR

“Intellectually and visually enthralling and often savagely funny.” – Dana Stevens, Slate
