“Full of gradually unpeeled complexities, ANATOMY OF A FALL is a family drama that wears the clothes of a crime procedural — a whodunit where marriage itself feels like a prime suspect.”
“The film slowly peels apart its layers, exploring how truths and facts become fictions in the retellings, whether they’re told in a courtroom or in a novel.”
Winner of the 2023 Palme d’Or at Cannes, the new film from Justine Triet (SIBYL, VICTORIA) stars Sandra Hüller (TONI ERDMANN, THE ZONE OF INTEREST) as a woman whose husband dies in a mysterious fall from the attic of their Swiss chalet. What follows is an unsettling, at times Kafka-esque, inquiry in the press and in the courts about the troubles within the family and the nature of guilt. A psychological thriller in the best sense of the word and a showcase for great performances all around, especially from Hüller.
