Force Majeure -Flixwatcher Podcast - Image 06

Force Majeure (or The Tourist) is a 2014 Swedish comedy-drama, it follows a family on a skiing trip to Alps which is interrupted by a non-threatening avalanche, how the husband Tomas reacts sets in motion the actions and emotions for the rest of the film.

Nothing much actually happens in this film – apart from the complete breakdown of the foundations of marriage and questioning of masculinity and patriarchy – over two hours. Its an uncomfortable mixture of tension and humour set against a stunning snowy landscape.


Overall Force Majeure scores 3.4 not an essential viewing but still definitely worth a look if you’re into this type of film but please don’t watch this (or any film) on your phone.
