A film by Yorgos Lanthimos, Drama/Romance, NR, 93 min., Greek w/English subtitles.
"A truly original work and a masterpiece of contemporary existentialism, confirming Lanthimos as Europe's most pertinent hope in...arthouse cinema." - Christoph Huber, Cinema Scope
"There's a pleasure to be had in watching the progress of a European auteur who has something genuinely new to say, and a genuinely new way of saying it. [The] film manages to juggle absurdist comedy with bleak tragedy, a yearning desire for human warmth with outbreaks of sudden violence, all the while maintaining an impressive control of tone." - Lee Marshall, Screen Daily
Yorgos Lanthimos's follow-up to his Academy Award nominee (and cult sensation) DOGTOOTH is another darkly comic, absurdist vision of (in)human relationships, focusing on a mysterious underground organization that helps mourners get over their losses by impersonating the deceased.
