Synopsis

Following on from his provocative thriller, New Order, writer-director Michel Franco’s latest, Sundown, is a simmering, suspenseful sharp jolt. Tim Roth (Resevoir Dogs) gives a blackly comic performance in this existential tour-de-force.

Alice and Neil Bennett (Charlotte Gainsbourg, Tim Roth) are the core of a wealthy British family on vacation in Acapulco with younger members Colin and Alexa (Samuel Bottomley and Albertine Kotting McMillan) until a distant emergency cuts their trip short. When one relative disrupts the family’s tight‐knit order, surprising tensions rise to the fore.

Franco’s transgressive feature is somehow simultaneously pitch-perfect and pitiless. The decision to follow Roth’s Neil whose motives are foggy and unclear for the most part, makes for an endlessly compelling and introspective portrait.
