Dogtooth BLU-RAY

DOGTOOTH is a darkly comic insight into a surreal world of parental control gone mad. Three teenagers are grounded in an alternate world by their overprotective parents, when a female outsider bursts into their bizarre family bubble, with shocking and strangely amusing results.

MOTHER (Michelle Valley) and FATHER (Christos Stergioglou) are so desperate to preserve their children's innocence that they create a self styled utopia within their secluded compound walls. Completely shut off from the outside world, the now grown up children have their own vocabulary and believe cats to be man eating predators, aeroplanes flying overhead to be toys and small yellow flowers to be zombies. When their father decides to invite his colleague CHRISTINA (Anna Kalaitzidou) in to service the sexual urges of the SON (Christos Passalis) the domestic balance is irrevocably disturbed. It isn't long before the OLDER DAUGHTER (Aggeliki Papoulia), YOUNGER DAUGHTER (Mary Tsoni) and SON start experimenting with sexuality and violence and the walls of their superficially constructed world of childhood innocence and fantasy come tumbling down.


As shocking and brutal as it is humorous, elegant and entertaining, Dogtooth is a significant piece of bold and inventive cinema.
