IFFR 2012: Alps
Movie: Alps (Yorgos Lanthimos, Greece, 2011, 93 min.)
Date: Jan 31, 2012
(FUCKINGLY FUNNY AND WEIRD)
Plot: If you’re in need of a temporary replacement of your recently deceased love one, the people of Alps can help you. But who’s really the client?
Cast: All-round impressive cast, especially the female leads were impressive.
Visuals: Tight, nothing extravagant. The weirdness of the plot and characters don’t need any support from the visuals.
Conclusion: Highly entertaining, a very interesting and original story idea, very well executed. It kept me wondering, confused and laughing.
Greek cinema leads the way in interesting and fresh cinema.
