Three sentence movie reviews: Force Majeure

This is a quality movie in that it’s pretty, the acting is quite good and the plot (husband runs away from family when he thinks an avalanche is going to sweep over them) very interesting.  However, it is a very slow and deliberate movie, giving the viewer a lot of time to take in all details in a scene.  Aside from multiple scenes of teeth being brushed, I had ample time to contemplate the many ways of transporting skiers at fancy Alpine resorts.

Cost:  $8.00
Where watched:  Living Room Theaters, with mom.

  1. That is a very interesting psychological conundrum that the avalanche raises. Hmmm…would I push my family away and run like hell or try to save them? Let the contemplation begin.

  2. This reminds me of this book I was looking at at Book People in Austin, a memoir by a woman who survived the 2004 tsunami. Her whole family died (husband, kids, parents, and I believe her friends, their kids and their parents, who were on the trip with them). She admitted that she tried to save everyone but her parents, that she ran right out of the hotel without even trying to warn them. I couldn’t believe the guts she had to admit that. I put the book on my reading list, even though it seems like it will be a gut wrenching read.
