Yorgos Lanthimos' frighteningly relevant but mordantly witty look at a dysfunctional Greek family offers a brilliant if deeply disturbing analysis of the power dynamics of parent-child relationships. Highly original and insightful in its narrative details and directed with an impressively cool, almost mechanical precision, the film was greeted as a breakthrough in Greek filmmaking. No animals were harmed in the making of this film in accordance with Cinematograph Films (Animals) Act 1937.
