The first feature of celebrated international auteur Yorgos Lanthimos takes place in a desolate Greek resort town where three tenuously connected people are motivated by mysterious impulses. A plain-clothes cop pursues triple passions for cars, tape recorders, and Russian women; a lonely, lovesick clerk works as a part-time photographer; and a hotel maid aspires to be an actress through unconventional methods. Never before released in the United States, this darkly comic and insinuatingly hypnotic film comprises the extraordinary solo debut from Lanthimos, whose first three films (Kinetta, Dogtooth, Alps) defined the Greek New Wave before he shifted to English-language films, including The Lobster and The Favourite—both nominated for Academy Awards, along with Dogtooth. A Kino Lorber release. View trailer.
