Alps by Yorgos Lanthimos (Greece, 2011, 90 min.). Yorgos Lanthimos’ follow-up to his Oscar nominated Dogtooth is another darkly comic vision of relationships, focusing on a company that offers to impersonate dead people to help grieving friends and family. It’s also a film that “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” (Screen Daily). Winner of Best Screenplay at the 2011 Venice Film Festival. In Greek with English subtitles.
