Force Majeure “Turist”, Ruben Ostlund 2014
By Ali Tenenbaum
This is an incredibly simple but remarkable film. If you blink you might miss the climax where a couple’s relationship pivots and slides into an awkward, mistrustful, argumentative stupor while on a ski vacation in France.The dialogue and setting are mesmerizing and allow you to inhabit their world for the duration of their trip. The story is straightforward but it raises complicated questions about relationships, family, commitment and friendship.
