From director Alex van Warmerdam and Drafthouse Films comes the strange and twisted independent flick BORGMAN. Having a successful run at TIFF, the movie 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 seems to be from another world, and it isn’t long before he has the wife, children and 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. The crazy trailer awaits you below and it is worth the watch.
BORGMAN stars Jan Bijvoet, Hadewych Minis, Jeroen Perceval, Sara Hjort Ditlevsen, Eva van de Wijdeven, Annet Malherbe, and Tom Dewispelaere.
"Borgman is the central character in Alex van Warmerdam’s dark, malevolent fable. Is he a dream or a demon, a twisted allegory or an all-too-real embodiment of our fears? Borgman is a sinister arrival in the sealed-off streets of modern suburbia. His presence unleashes a crowing gallery of distortion around the careful façade constructed by an arrogant, comfortable couple, their three children, and nanny."
BORGMAN will have a limited theatrical release on June 6th.
