On the heels of yesterday's fantastically creepy trailer for Alex van Warmerdam’s BORGMAN is a couple of new stills that put a glass of fine wine in the hand of the titular character who is certainly up to no good. This is a pretty wicked looking film from Warmerdam who appears to have turned the home invasion genre on its head. I'm still trying to wrap my head around what this one is about because I get the feeling that the trailer only just barely scratches the surface of all the terrifying things that lay beneath. So if you missed the trailer, do yourselves a favor and give it a peek right HERE.
Here's a synopsis:
A dark suburban fable exploring the nature of evil in unexpected places, Borgman follows an enigmatic vagrant who enters the lives of an upper-class family and quickly unravels their carefully curated lifestyle. Charming and mysterious, Camiel Borgman seems almost otherworldly, and it isn't long before he has the wife, children and nanny under his spell in a calculated bid to take over their home life. However, his domestic assimilation takes a malevolent turn as his ultimate plan comes to bear, igniting a series of increasingly maddening and menacing events.
Jan Bijvoet, Hadewych Minis, Jeroen Perceval, Sara Hjort Ditlevsen, Eva van de Wijdeven, Annet Malherbe, and Tom Dewispelaere star. Look for BORGMAN on June 6th.
