Alps

ORIGINAL TITLE:
Alpeis
Hellas / 2011 / 93 min
DIRECTOR:
Giorgos Lanthimos

From the director og DOGTOOTH comes a new and equally absurd tale of a country gone wrong. Lanthimos’s microuniverse involves a coach and his female gymnast, a nurse and an ambulance driver. They have formed the group ”Alps” and specialises in replacing the deceased member of a family or household. The concept is easy enough: the bereaved can hire a member of the crew to spend a few hours a week to act out the part of the deceased and thus make the transition easier. Again Lanthimos proves his impressive talent for taking a script and putting into live onto the big screen – the theatrical and the natural merges seamlessly.
