Anatomy of a Fall
Winner of the Palme d’Or at this year's Cannes Film Festival (and Neil's favourite film of the year!), this gripping courtroom drama/investigative thriller from director Justine Triet (Sibyl) follows the spiralling life of a German writer (Sandra Hüller, Toni Erdmann) suspected of her husband’s murder.
When her husband Samuel is mysteriously found dead in the snow below their secluded chalet, Sandra becomes the main suspect when the police begin to question whether he fell or was pushed.
The trial soon becomes not just an investigation, but a gripping psychological journey into the depths of Sandra and Samuel’s complicated marriage.
With conflicting evidence and inconsistent testimony, words are wielded like weapons and shocking truths come to light in this acclaimed Palme d’Or winning drama.
