Anatomy of a fall is a thriller that follows Sandra (Sandra Hüller), a German author, her French husband Samuel and their 11-year-old son Daniel living a secluded life in a remote town in the French Alps. When Samuel is found dead in the snow beneath their chalet, the police wonder if he committed suicide or was murdered. Samuel’s death is treated as a suspected murder, and Sandra becomes the prime suspect. Little by little, the trial becomes not just an investigation into the circumstances of Samuel’s death, but a disturbing psychological journey into the depths of Sandra and Samuel’s conflicted relationship.
The deal was closed by Jeff Deutchman, Neon’s president of acquisitions, and was negotiated with Fionnuala Jamison, general manager and head of international sales at mk2 Films.
Triet said: “I am so very happy and I know I speak for the entire team Anatomy of a fall that Neon will distribute our film in North America. Neon really understood the story and what we wanted to achieve, and we are excited that they will bring the film to the widest possible audience.”
