“A truly original work and a masterpiece of contemporary existentialism, confirming Lanthimos as Europe’s most pertinent hope in arthouse cinema.”—Christoph Huber, Cinema Scope

Greek filmmaker Yorgos Lanthimos’s follow-up to his Academy Award–nominated Dogtooth is another darkly comic, absurdist vision of (in)human relationships. This time he focuses on a mysterious underground organization that helps mourners get over their losses by impersonating the deceased. (93 mins., video)
