Euphoria is a Swedish-British-German drama film written and directed by Lisa Langseth in her English-language debut. It was screened in the Platform section at the 2017 Toronto International Film Festival.[1]

Plot[edit]

Two sisters in conflict, Ines (Alicia Vikander) and Emilie (Eva Green), travel through Europe towards a mystery destination.

Cast[edit]

Production[edit]

The film was said to be in early development by December 2013, and was originally slated for a 2015 release.[2] In an early 2016 interview, Langseth confirmed that her third feature film would discuss the rising phenomenon of assisted suicide in Europe, and was described as taking place in a "fictional euthanasia clinic."[3]

On 6 May 2016 it was announced that Alicia Vikander and her London-based agent Charles Collier had launched Vikarious Productions. The first feature for the company was set to be Euphoria, directed by Langseth and featuring Vikander and Green in the lead roles as sisters.[4]

In June, it was reported that Charlotte Rampling had joined the cast in an unspecified role.[5] Charles Dance, Adrian Lester and Mark Stanley were announced to have joined the cast in August.

Filming[edit]

Principal photography began in early August 2016 in Munich, before moving to the German Alps.[6]
