  • Kinetta



    A non-ideal work, but perfectly in tune with the inner melancholy. Among Lanthimos's few purely Greek works, "Kinetta" ranks above "Alps" but below "Dogtooth" for me.

A group of brave partisans help their comrades cross the border, avoiding harsh snow-capped mountains, wild forests, and Nazi patrols. A laconic narrative with voice-over from Gustaw Holoubek, memorable images of real and fictional characters, convincing performances by non-professionals, dazzling winter landscapes, an intense plot, a dynamic full immersion in the action and spiritual oneness with the brave…
