'Anatomy of a Fall' takes the viewer on an intimate journey and a courtroom dissection of a complicated marriage. Samuel and Sandra (brilliantly performed by Sandra Hüller, watch for an Oscar nomination!), their son Daniel and his guide dog Snoop are living in a partially renovated chalet in a remote mountain location in France. The marriage is further strained by Samuel’s resentment toward his wife and her current writing successes versus his creative block.
Daniel discovers his father dead below their attic window. At first Sandra assumes it must have been an accidental fall but a head injury suggests Samuel was pushed from the balcony. In the end, it is Daniel’s testimony that will sway the jury.
Justine Triet, the film’s co-writer and director won the illustrious Palme d’Or at the 2023 Cannes Film Festival becoming the third female director to win the award. This highly recommended film will play for one night only, Thursday, Jan. 25 at 7 p.m. at the Park Theatre in Goderich.
