Borgman is the main character of this dark fable. Is he a dream or a demon, a twisted allegory or an all-too-real embodiment of our fears? His presence unleashes a crowing gallery of distortion around the careful façade constructed by an arrogant, comfortable couple, their three children and nanny.
The archetypal story of an outsider upending the values of a middle-class family is revised anew in this uncanny thriller by Alex van Warmerdam. A modernist fable on the subject of evil and domesticity (with welcome shades of dark humor!), Borgman is an experience you’re unlikely to ever shake.
