Sandra, a successful German writer, has been living in the French Alps with her husband Samuel and son Daniel. When Samuel’s dead body is found below one of their chalet’s windows, a police investigation raises many questions. One year later, Sandra is on trial for murder.
As the trial proceeds, Sandra and her husband’s complex relationship comes under intense scrutiny. The conflicting evidence, inconsistent testimony and shocking truths that are revealed make Anatomy of a Fall a compelling and gripping drama.
Featuring an outstanding lead performance from Sandra Hüller, Justine Triet’s film scooped the top prize earlier this year at the 2023 Cannes Film Festival, and became one of year’s most anticipated films.
