Dogtooth – Trailer

10 Jun

I don’t know much about Greek cinema, but this looks engaging and yet somewhat unsettling. Dogtooth is a satire about a married couple who raise their three children in utter isolation. The children are led to believe that they will be physically capable of venturing into the outside world only when one of their dogteeth falls out. The movie was directed by Yorgos Lanthimos and won the Prix Un Certain Regard award at the 2009 Cannes Film Festival. It was the first production from Boo Productions, an Athens-based advertising company. Apparently, before the Greek economy went bust, the Greek Film Center supported the project with about 200,000 Euro and much of the production was done with help from volunteers. No word on a local release yet.
