Force Majeure is an observational comedy about the role of the male in modern family life. It depicts what happens when ‘Civilized Man’ is confronted by ‘Nature’.


A Swedish family travels to the French Alps to enjoy skiing. The weather is nice and slopes are spectacular but, during a lunch at a mountainside restaurant, an avalanche turns everything upside down. With diners fleeing in all directions, mother Ebba calls for her husband Tomas as she tries to protect their children. Tomas, meanwhile, is running for his life… The anticipated disaster fails to occur, and yet the family's world has been shaken, a question mark hanging over their father in particular. The couple's marriage hangs in the balance as Tomas struggles desperately to reclaim his role as family patriarch.
