quietearth [Film Festival 08.02.10] Greece movie news drama



Even before I read that Dogtooth director Giorgos Lanthimos was producing this, I was already digging the synopsis and thinking this was a part of Greece's comeup in original cinema. The experimental, speculative vibe I get from this excites me.

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.
