Yorgos Lanthimos's eagerly anticipated follow-up to the Oscar nominated, cult smash Dogtooth is another weird and wonderful exploration of human psychology. Revolving around a group calling themselves the Alps - a service providing stand-ins in for the recently deceased, hired by relatives, friends or colleagues to aid the grieving process – the film bounds from one bizarre set-piece to the next in a dazzling mix of black humour, unsettling drama and delicious ambiguity. Winner of three international film awards, including a Fipresci prize and the Golden Osella award for best screenplay at the Venice Film Festival 2011, Alps confirms Lanthimos as one of the most exciting emerging directors in world cinema.
