Borgman US Trailer

This should be a must watch, but I'm a bit afraid Borgman might just scare away a few people. But I love, love, love this film. So wacky, subversive, incendiary, so much fun. Drafthouse Films debuted a new official U.S. trailer for Alex van Warmerdam's Borgman, starring Dutch actor Jan Bijvoet (seen in The Broken Circle Breakdown and mostly Belgian TV shows) as Camiel Borgman. This first premiered at Cannes and will be released after Cannes this year. The footage in this starts exactly as it does in the film, and goes on to show more of what happens, so if you don't want to be spoiled watch out. It's a bit like Funny Games in the Netherlands. This is a great film that I hope finds a solid audience here, because it's such dark, devious fun.

Here's the full US trailer for Alex van Warmerdam's Borgman, in high def from Apple:

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. Written and directed by Dutch filmmaker Alex van Warmerdam (Grimm). Borgman first premiered at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival, and was released in most of Europe in late 2013.

    Again, this is why I like this web site. Thanks Alex. I had no awareness of this film at all. From the viewing this trailer you've provided I'd expect to see this film as soon as it hits L.A.
    • You're welcome, no problem. It's a great film, definitely see it when it comes out in LA. I think you'll be surprised and delighted like I was.
