On her 11th birthday, Angeliki jumps off the balcony and dies. While the police and Social Services try to discover the reason for this apparent suicide, Angeliki’s family insist that it was an accident. What is the secret Angeliki took with her? Why does her family try to “forget” her and move on?
Sweeping five awards at the Venice Film Festival and receiving high praise from critics, Miss Violence is an under-known gem from the Greek Weird Wave film movement. Told with clinical control and a macabre tone, this gripping and chilling tale of a dysfunctional family is as disturbing as it gets.
