Alex van Warmerdam's Borgman is the first Dutch movie to play at Cannes Film Festival in nearly 40 years. With its daring, dark yet also highly amusing subject matter, it attracted all kinds of positive attention at last year's festival.Check out the latest trailer, which hints at what is to come when the movie gets a June 6 release:
From the 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 & 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.
