Movie recommendation: Dogtooth

March 02, 2014

From imdb: Three teenagers are confined to an isolated country estate that could very well be on another planet. The trio spend their days listening to endless homemade tapes that teach them a whole new vocabulary. Any word that comes from beyond their family abode is instantly assigned a new meaning. Hence 'the sea' refers to a large armchair and 'zombies' are little yellow flowers. Having invented a brother whom they claim to have ostracized for his disobedience, the über-controlling parents terrorize their offspring into submission. The father is the only family member who can leave the manicured lawns of their self-inflicted exile, earning their keep by managing a nearby factory, while the only outsider allowed on the premises is his colleague Christina, who is paid to relieve the son of his male urges. Tired of these dutiful acts of carnality, Christina disturbs the domestic balance.

Den græske film Dogtooth er et absurd drama. Plottet er ikke det stærkeste ved denne film, selvom jeg synes der er noget sjovt, på den lidt ude-af-verdenen måde, over det. Elskede dog det visuelle ved den og vil anbefale denne mærkelige film. Anbefales ikke til sarte seere.

The greek movie Dogtooth is an absurd drama. The plot isn't the strongest with this movie, even though I did find it funny in a sort of weird, out-of-this-world way. I did love the premise and the visuals of it though, and I would definitely recommend it. Not recommended for sensitive watchers.
