Sandra, Samuel and their visually impaired son Daniel have been living in a remote chalet in the French Alps for a year. When Samuel is found dead under suspicious circumstances, Sandra is charged. Was his fall a fatal accident, suicide or was he pushed by his wife? In the court case that follows, their relationship is analyzed in painful detail. Because there is little direct evidence, the public prosecutor uses all kinds of information. Sandra would have been a bad husband, manipulative, aggressive, and a bad mother to boot. 

 Anatomy of a Fall – with a fantastic role by Sandra Hüller (Toni Erdmann, The Zone of Interest) – is a compelling straight-talking drama that will keep you glued to the edge of your seat. Juice in the courtroom: director Justine Triet won a Palme d’Or for it in Cannes.
