"Rarely has a film taken men to the woodshed for their fallings which such a mix of disgust, pity, and wit, the last of which is the key ingredient that helps make Force Majeure such a unique high wire balancing act."—Esquire

"The acting is impeccably controlled, with leads Kuhnke and Kongsli sympathetically establishing the genteel, only slightly self-satisfied blandness of their characters, then tracing the cracks that spread in their makeup."
—The Observer

This wickedly funny and precisely observed psychodrama tells the story of a model Swedish family on a skiing holiday in the French Alps. One morning, when an avalanche suddenly bears down on a mountainside restaurant the family is dining at, the father makes a selfish decision that causes rifts in his relationships with his family.
