Synopsis

Yorgos Lanthimos' eagerly awaited follow-up to the Oscar-nominated Dogtooth is another weird and wonderful exploration of human psychology. A nurse, a paramedic, a gymnast and her coach have formed a service for hire. They stand in for dead people by appointment, hired by the relatives, friends or colleagues of the deceased. The company is called Alps, lead by the demanding disciplinarian Mount Blanc. However Mount Rose, the nurse, fails to live up to his exacting standards and her behaviour with clients becomes increasingly erratic. Serving up another cocktail of black humour, unsettling drama and delicious ambiguity, Lanthimos confirms himself as one of the most exciting emerging directors in world cinema.
