Dogtooth (Canino)

Yorgos Lanthimos





Official Fantàstic Competition

Trailer / Images:


A married couple and their three children live happily in a high standard villa surrounded by a palisade. Only the father can leave the house the children are manipulated in an alternative reality that keeps them completely isolated from all contact with the outside. A cat is a bloodthirsty predator, Frank Sinatra is the family’s grandfather and sex is just another bodily function in the hilariously grotesque Dogtooth, a surprising tour de force where the fixed shot is an impassive executioner and the banality of its setting becomes a mesmerizing and disturbing atmosphere.
