Winner of the second most coveted film prize in the world, the Cannes Film Festival Palme d’Or grand prize, director Justine Triet’s Anatomy of a Fall is the most riveting courtroom drama in recent memory. For the past year, Sandra (an astonishing Sandra Hüller), her husband Samuel, and their 11-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. Little by little, the trial becomes not just an investigation into the circumstances of Samuel's death but an unsettling psychological journey into the depths of Sandra and Samuel's relationship.” “Triet masterfully turns our attention from potential crime-solving to the inner workings of two imperfect people and one complicated marriage. It’s absolutely riveting” - Candace Frederick, Huffington Post.

In French and in German with English subtitles and in English.
