OT: Borgman

Alex van Warmerdam // Netherlands, Belgium, Denmark, 2013
Fiction Feature // FF2013



Evil turns up from nowhere. Its name: Borgman. An unkempt, bearded forest man, flushed out of his hole by hunters, who escapes and seeks refuge in a suburban family. Once their uninvited guest is ensconced in the garden shed, the family’s peaceful life is at an end. Borgman is a devil looking for trouble. He provokes, schemes and manipulates. From behind the immaculate facade of his hosts, he brings out what has long been suppressed: sexual desires, violence, hatred. And he is not alone. His accomplices are only a text message away. Borgman is a radical, deeply disturbing attack on the bourgeoisie.


Alex Van Warmerdam (*1952) is one of the Netherland's most interesting and prolific directors. His film Borgman ran in competition at the 2013 Cannes festival and was also shown at FILMFEST HAMBURG. Schneider vs. Bax is his ninth film.
