Fall Anatomy A thriller about Sandra (Sandra Hüller), a German writer, her French husband Samuel, and their 11-year-old son Daniel, who live a secluded life in a remote town in the French Alps. When Samuel is found dead in the snow below their chalet, the police wonder if he committed suicide or was murdered. Samuel’s death is treated as a suspected 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 an unsettling psychological journey into the depths of Sandra and Samuel’s conflicted relationship.

The deal was inked by Neon’s head of acquisitions, Jeff Deutschmann, and negotiated with Fionnuala Jamison, managing director and head of international sales at mk2 Films.

“I’m really happy,” said Treat, “knowing I’m speaking on behalf of the whole team Fall Anatomy Neon will distribute our film in North America. Neon deeply understood the story and what we aimed to achieve, and we are delighted that they will bring the film to the widest audience possible.”
