In the market for a little Greek horror/comedy/tragedy? Then Yorgos Lanthimos’ new film Dogtooth may just be exactly what you’re looking for!
The flick will be enjoying its New York premiere at various venues on June 25th. It stars Christos Stergioglou, Michelle Valley, Aggeliki Papoulia, Mary Tsoni, Hristos Passalis, and Anna Kalaitzidou.
Check out the plot crunch and the trailer below.
“A hyper-stylized mixture of physical violence and verbal comedy, Dogtooth is a darkly funny look at three teenagers confined to their parents’ isolated country estate and kept under strict rule and regimen — an inscrutable scenario that suggests a warped experiment in social conditioning and control. Terrorized into submission by their father, the children spend their days devising their own games and learning an invented vocabulary (a salt shaker is a “telephone,” an armchair is “the sea”) — until a trusted outsider, brought in to satisfy the son’s libidinal urges, plants the seeds of rebellion by trading VHS tapes for sexual favors.”
