You Probably Won’t See a More Dryly Funny Movie Involving an Avalanche Than “Force Majeure”


Really, the avalanche is tangential to what’s so funny about Swedish dramedy, “Force Majeure” from Ruben Östlund. A Swedish family of four goes to the French Alps on vacation and goes through briefly traumatic experience, but then goes on to deal with something more profound in how misinformed their traditional gender and family roles are.

If you’re into seeing what appears to be a happily married couple with two kids subversively, but hysterically question why they’re with each other, Force Majeure is the movie for you. 

Catch it in the handful of theaters that it’s still playing it in LA.
