SYNOPSIS - "Caustic, surreal, creepy, and blackly funny. One of the biggest unexpected pleasures of Cannes." - Indiewire

Richard and Marina have a perfect life in a perfectly manicured, well-to-do suburb of Amsterdam. That is, until the mysterious, menacing Borgman arrives on their doorstep and starts dismantling their cosy existence, gleefully destroying the delusions that bind them together. Is Borgman shaman, demon, maniac or messiah? And can they escape his terrifying hold on them?

A dangerous, full-throttle ride into a suburban heart of darkness, Borgman is the disquieting, darkly beguiling new film from Netherlands wunderkind Alex van Warmerdam. Echoing Michael Haneke's Funny Games, but with a slyer, more insidious edge, Borgman shows us a world that is unsettling, provocative and all too familiar.
