A couple of writers, Sandra and Samuel, and their eleven-year-old son, Daniel, live a secluded life in the mountains. One day, Samuel is found dead, appearing to have fallen from a window. Doubts immediately arise as to the plausibility of this being a case of suicide and the possibility of murder is put on the table. Suspicion falls on Sandra, who is put on trial, and the couple's relationship is heavily dissected. A gripping family drama, Anatomy of a Fall thrives on small details, from Sandra Hüller's magnetic performance to a soundtrack that punctuates key moments in the narrative and a process of character development shaped by the gradually revealed details of the couple's intimacy. Director Justine Triet has become the third woman to win the Palme d'Or at Cannes with this remarkable film.
