showtimes and tickets

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.

“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

“With 2009’s acclaimed DOGTOOTH, Lanthimos earned a reputation as the laughing mortician of contemporary Greek culture. This splendidly icy, opaque picture goes further still, showing a world nudged off its axis and an emotional topography where the signposts are backwards and the satnav scrambled.”
– Xan Brooks, The Guardian

“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

“As bizarre and elliptical as DOGTOOTH and KINETTA, and like its offbeat predecessors has an inexplicable power to draw the viewer into its hermetic web of inhuman relationships.”
– Deborah Young, The Hollywood Reporter
