Watch: Official US Trailer for Acclaimed Greek Film 'Dogtooth'
Here we go. Kino International has finally debuted the official US trailer for the critically acclaimed Greek film Dogtooth. If you haven't heard about this film yet, then you better read up on it, or you won't know what you're even watching. Dogtooth is, to be frank, a twisted, odd, unsettling "satire" about a Greek family who keeps their teenage children locked up in a country estate. I saw this at Cannes last year, didn't enjoy it one bit, but it went on to win a big award there and has been heralded by fellow critics like James Rocchi. I don't know what else to say, but if you still want to see this, I say go for it. You definitely will not forget it!
Watch the official US trailer for Giorgos Lanthimos' Dogtooth:
A hyper-stylized mixture of physical violence and verbal comedy, Dogtooth is a darkly funny look at three teenagers confined inside of their parents' isolated country estate and kept under strict rule and regimen.
Dogtooth, also known as Kynodontas, was directed by Greek filmmaker Giorgos Lanthimos, of past Greek films My Best Friend and Kinetta. The screenplay was written by Lanthimos and first-time writer Efthymis Filippou. This premiered at the Cannes Film Festival last year where it won the Un Certain Regard Award, the top prize in its category. Kino International picked up the film after it played at other festivals and will be bringing Dogtooth to very limited theaters (New York/Los Angeles) starting on June 25th this summer.
