Kinetta 15 rating

The first solo feature of acclaimed director Yorgos Lanthimos (The Favourite, Dogtooth) follows the cryptic, bizarre activities of three inscrutable residents of a Greek holiday resort.

Comedy 2006 94 mins

Director: Yorgos Lanthimos

Overview

Kinetta... a desolate Greek resort town, inhabited during the off-season by migrant workers. In this colourless setting, the film studies the cryptic activities of an inscrutable trio: a plain-clothes cop with a passion for cars, tape recorders and Russian women; a loner clerk who is a part-time photographer; and a hotel maid with aspirations to be an actress. They barely speak, passing the time by staging outlandish re-enactments of local murders. Their efforts are obsessive, the details exhaustive, their purpose... questionable.

This darkly comic and compellingly hypnotic film is the extraordinary first solo feature of Yorgos Lanthimos (Dogtooth, The Lobster, The Favourite), one of Greece's most acclaimed filmmakers - a director who's considered one of cinema's true modern masters.
