Anatomy of a Fall - Official Trailer


This Telluride at Dartmouth selection is back by popular demand! Writer-director Justine Triet's 2023 Palme d'Or winner reimagines Bergman's Scenes From a Marriage through the prism of an Agatha Christie whodunit. Samuel (Samuel Theis), a beloved husband and father, shockingly falls to his death in the wintry French countryside. A year later, his wife Sandra (Sandra Hüller), a successful novelist, is on trial for his murder. 

Triet's superlative script ingeniously uses ellipsis and misdirection to create a hypnotic chess game between defense and prosecution attorneys, while shifting our sympathies to Daniel, the couple's clever, vision-impaired son who has grown up in the eye of his parents' marital storms. Hüller captures the excruciating conflict between Sandra's devotion to her family and her obsessive intellectual, sexual and creative ambitions.

Nominated for five Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actress and Best Original Screenplay.
