Force Majeure (Turist) (2014)

Director: Ruben Östlund. Cast: Johannes Kuhnke, Lisa Loven Kongsli, Kristofer Hivju, Clara Wettergren. 118 min. Rated R. Sweden/France/Norway. Drama.

A Swedish family is vacationing at a ski resort when an avalanche occurs, and during the critical moment, the father acts in a manner that's quite ... disappointing. The crisis resolves, but now the stability of the marriage is severely questioned - and the entire movie revolves around that question. This is an incredible movie that keeps the discussion tense till the very last minute, and is guaranteed to have you debating it with your friends, and questioning your own marriage. Other than admiring the breathtaking cinematography, saying anything else will spoil it.

PS: With Gone Girl, The Theory of Everything, and now this one, 2014 sure was a rough year for marriage.
