In Dog tooth However, there are no names We are faced with a family made up of people, the majority of whom behave like animals from an education imparted at home in which words adapt to the needs to preserve the secret of their existence. In the truest sense of the word, the children bark and lick, the latter in exchange for “prizes”.

Lanthimos has created a drama with hints of dark humor that does not come across as comic relief in the face of such an exciting story set in a house (large but perceived as a fortress). But how an analysis of the imposition of trauma on children’s bodies and minds through language.

Alps

2011

With the departure in 2011 of AlpsAgain a purely Greek production, the name Yorgos Lanthimos became a reference for “absurd” cinema. Because? Because the media paid attention to the surface of their stories without pointing out that the absurdity was just the facade of something more realistic (even on a psychological level).

Dog tooth was described as a comedy (which it is not, as the word is used in a way that puts the audience at odds with their own understanding of reality and lack of empathy), and the same fate occurred Alpswhich shows us a company whose services consist of helping people cope with the loss of a loved one.

As? Various actors take the place of the deceased and become part of the everyday life of families or couples. Reliving important moments with dialogue and costumes, but above all with the presence of someone who takes the name of someone who is no longer here.

And that’s how we know it to an actress who takes her job very seriously and breaks some company rules by getting involved with couples who have lost their love or accepting very personal terms from daughters or mothers. Over time, Nurse is no longer herself, but all the people she wanted to return to their reality, not that of their families.

Alps tells us how The only certain thing in life is death, and our fear of loss and pain is so great that we become terrible actors in sequences we largely forget but others we hold on to. Filling the void of a being that is no longer there, but which of them all?

Alps Is available in MUBI.
