Alps [Alpeis] (2011)

★★★★☆

Yorgos Lanthimos’ third feature film is a difficult journey, yielding its secrets slowly, resonating long after one has stopped watching it.  It buries its sombre and poignant emotional core in an elliptical dramatization and style which embodies the extreme difficulties associated with the subject itself, that of the intractability of grief. 1,114 more words
