Dogtooth

Dogtooth

DOGTOOTH focuses on three teenagers confined to an isolated suburban estate that could very well be on another planet. Channeling “The Little Prince“ wisdoms, the trio spend their days listening to endless homemade tapes that teach them a whole new vocabulary. Any word that comes from beyond their family abode is instantly assigned a new meaning. Hence “the sea” refers to a large armchair and “zombies” are little yellow flowers. The father is the only family member who can leave the manicured lawns of their selfinflicted exile, earning their keep by managing a nearby factory, while the only outsider allowed on the premises is his colleague Christina, who is paid to relieve the son of his male urges. Masterfully art-directed and intensely focused, DOGTOOTH feels so otherworldly it could easily pass as science fiction. (Dimitri Eipides)
