Palme D’or winning French film Anatomy Of A Fall heads to UK cinemas in November. Here’s the trailer.

The Cannes Film Festival’s coveted Palme D’or award this year went to French drama Anatomy Of A Fall. The film has earned highly positive reviews as well as that aforementioned award, with critic Guy Lodge describing it as a kind of emotional procedural, less concerned with cold facts than with multiple parties’ fluid, permeable ideas of the truth, and the ellipses between them.” (Anatomy Of A Fall also has a 98 percent score on Rotten Tomatoes, too, if you care about that sort of thing.)
It’s taken its time, but the film is now getting ready for most of the rest of the world to see it, including – crucial, for the purposes of this article – the UK. Hurray!
If you’re unfamiliar with the movie, the synopsis reads as follows:
For the past year, Sandra (Sandra Hüller), a German writer, her French husband Samuel, and their eleven-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 committed suicide or was killed. Samuel’s death is treated as suspicious, presumed murder, and Sandra becomes the main suspect. Little by little the trial becomes not just an investigation of the circumstances of the death, but an unsettling psychological journey into the depths of Sandra and Samuel’s conflicted relationship.

The cast also includes Swann Arlaud, Milo Machado Graner, Antoine Reinartz, and Samuel Theis.

Justine Triet directed the film from a screenplay she co-wrote with Arthur Harari.

Picturehouse is handling the UK rollout of the film, and it will release Anatomy Of A Fall in UK cinemas on the 10 November. In the meantime, here’s the trailer:
