A family go about their daily life, cut off from the rest of the world. The three children have never left their parents’ yard and are hemmed in by the boundaries imposed by their father. However, his strict regime eventually cannot be maintained, thanks to influences from the outside world.
A festival hit nominated for an Academy Award, Dogtooth is a darkly comic insight into a surreal world of parental control gone mad. As shocking and brutal as it is humorous, elegant, and entertaining, Greek “Weird Wave” auteur Yorgos Lanthimos’s film is bold and inventive cinema.
