2014, Magnolia Pictures, 118 min, Sweden, Dir: Ruben Östlund

If you’re vacationing with your wife and kids in the Alps when disaster suddenly threatens, what do you do? If you’re Tomas (Johannes Bah Kuhnke), you panic – a reaction that produces an avalanche of consequences in this perceptive, funny and ultimately moving look at family dynamics in a crisis. Gorgeously shot by Fredrik Wenzel, this highly original film picked up the Un Certain Regard Jury Prize at this year’s Cannes Film Festival. In Swedish, English and French with English subtitles.
