quietearth [Celluloid 09.07.10] Greece movie news drama



I'm starting to wonder if Greece hasn't started a new sub genre (or maybe continued one) with this isolationist and perversion theme they've got going with Dogtooth and now Attenberg. Me likey.

Marina, 23, is growing up with her architect father in a prototype factory town by the sea. Finding the human species strange and repellent, she keeps her distance. Instead she stubbornly observes it through the songs of Suicide, the mammal documentaries of Sir David Attenborough, and the sex-ed lessons she receives from her only friend, Bella. A stranger comes to town and challenges her to a foosball duel, on her own table. Her father meanwhile ritualistically prepares for his exit from the 20th century, which he considers to be "overrated." Caught between the two men and her collaborator Bella, Marina investigates the wondrous mystery of the human fauna.

NSFW Teaser after the break. English subs too!

Trailer feels similar to quirky 'Somewhere', in general this looks very zeitgeist, -arguably in a good way
