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
Tried too hard. I actually got bored.
It’s definitely a Yorgos Lanthimos odd experience...Reminds me of the newer film he wrote and directed called The Killing of a Sacred Deer...The transactions and exchanges, along with the deviant and abnormal family dynamics are similar...
weird as hell, grossly perverse, and hilarious. So basically a Yorgos Lanthimos film.
extremely unpredictable and very unsettling. makes you think how many families are out there like this.
