Dogtooth

AKA "Kynodontas" Graceful, enigmatic, and often frightening, 'Dogtooth' is an ingenious dark comedy that won the Prix Un Certain Regard at the 2009 Cannes Film Festival, propelling Yorgos Lanthimos to the forefront of contemporary cinema's most ambitious young filmmakers. Centers on three teenagers whose oddball parents have shut them off from the outside world. So far removed that they believe house cats are deadly and yellow flowers are zombies, the kids remain sheltered in a quaint alternative universe. But when their father cracks and lets a stranger in, one of the girls starts to get suspicious of her situation. With Michele Valley, Christos Stergioglou, Mary Tsoni. "Resolutely arthouse in intent, understated but with sudden bursts of violence and moments of sexual explicitness. And it proves once and for all that Lars Von Trier doesnt have the European monopoly on twisted black comedy" - NR
