First 5 Minutes of Alex van Warmerdam’s BORGMAN Prepares Viewers for the Hunt, Plus 12 Images and Poster from the Film

     June 5, 2014


I came across writer-director Alex van Warmerdam’s new film Borgman in the most roundabout of ways, but upon viewing the film’s trailer, I was completely entranced.  We’ve provided it for you after the jump, but I’d advise watching the first five minutes of Borgman, which was made available earlier today.  The dark thriller follows the title character (Jan Bijvoet), a mysterious vagrant who charms his way into an upper-class family while masking his ultimate plan.

If the atmospheric first few minutes of Borgman don’t hook you, the trailer certainly will.  Be sure to head over to Drafthouse Films’ page for theaters and showtimes for Borgman, which opens in limited release tomorrow, and come back tomorrow for our review of the film.  Hit the jump to watch the first five minutes and to take a look at the new images from Borgman.

The first five minutes of Borgman can be viewed below, followed by the film’s trailer, synopsis, images and poster:


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 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.
