Directed by Yorgos Lanthimos
Yorgos Lanthimos directs this blackly comic Greek psychodrama.
Mama (Michelle Valley) and Papa (Christos Stergioglou) have created a surreal self-styled utopia for their three children within their secluded compound walls.
Completely shut off from the outside world, the now adult children have grown up with their own language, and believe that cats are man-eating predators, aeroplanes flying overhead are toys and small yellow flowers are zombies.
The family's domestic harmony is irrevocably disturbed when their father invites his colleague Christina (Anna Kalaitzidou) to service the sexual urges of the son (Hristos Passalis).
Before long, the son and the two daughters (Aggeliki Papoulia and Mary Tsoni) are conducting a series of bizarre experiments with sex and violence, and their superficially constructed world of childhood innocence and fantasy threatens to come crashing down around them.
