Fifth about The Seventh

Force Majeure (Turist)

Force MajeureForce Majeure: while the premise of Ruben Östlund’s film is an intriguing one, the way the story unfurls lessens what it has to say. Partly it’s because a few of the episodes and scenes are somewhat unrelated to the whole; partly, because of the shifting tone (which at times slips into dark comedy). Also, even if the framing of Fredrik Wenzel is beautiful, rigorous and precise, the camerawork helps prevent a deep connection with the characters. Such combination would generally increase the appreciation for the work; however, the thematic implications were too uncomfortable.
