Dogtooth

Dogtooth

Directed by Yorgos Lanthimos

In an effort to protect their three children from the corrupting influence of the outside world, a couple transforms their home into a gated compound of cultural deprivation and strict rules of behavior. But children cannot remain innocent forever. When the father brings home a young woman to satisfy his son's sexual urges, the family's engineered "reality" begins to crumble, with devastating consequences. Like the haunting, dystopic visions of Michael Haneke and Gaspar Noé, DOGTOOTH punctuates its compelling drama with moments of shocking violence, creating a biting social satire that is as profound as it is provocative.

Three teenagers live isolated. But children cannot remain innocent forever.

Cast: Christos Stergioglou, Michele Valley, Angeliki Papoulia, Hristos Passalis, Mary Tsoni

This movie was a great delve into the psychology of behavior a family would develop after being deformed and isolated (subjugated, repressed, mentally tortured), by the ideology of a "head of family" figure. It makes you wince if you can realize this shit can actually occur.

Has its moments, but ultimately unsatisfying.
