wow gambarnya!!!!,kenapa MUBI SEPERI INI!!???
A film of freed repression. The taboo is mocked by transparent humour, and our embarrassment is mirrored in the dialogue. A bleak reminder of how far-off we've strayed from human nature, but not enough to make us feel bad about it. Fantastic.
Very evidently pleased with its own quirkiness, which seems to have been intended as shorthand for, or a shortcut to, the "profundity" it wants to project. Made me doubt my positive thoughts about Dogtooth.
Although "Attenberg" approaches death and sex with refreshing frankness, Tsangari's film feels a bit too calculated with its deadpan execution and moments of Python-esque silliness. Like "Dogtooth," the film examines how a young woman comes to terms with reality after being isolated for so long, but this film lacks the sheer power of Lanthimos' twisted parable. Despite its many ideas, "Attenberg" feels undercooked.
Mubi's synopsis is not very good, it doesn't do justice to the movie. This is better http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Attenberg#Plot Attenberg is NOT the city, it's a mispronunciation of David Attenborough, and the movie barely talks about the city or the workers, as mentioned in the synopsis.
the director of Dogtooth is an actor in this film and the producer of Dogtooth is the director. I loved the coming of age (I love any Coming Of Age movies for some reason) story and the way its filmed. Nice acting from the cast especially main actress Ariane Labed.It has similar vibes to Dogtooth but its about a girl's struggle to find out who she is and how to deal with her fathers impending death from cancer. It does get a little pretentious in some spots but I enjoyed it. If you're a fan of Dogtooth then you'll want to check this out.
Athina Rachel Tsangari's ATTENBERG is a strange and oddly compelling continuation of the Greek New Wave, following the success of the superior DOGTOOTH. Following a sheltered young woman whose father is dying of cancer, while her best friend tries to educate her in the ways of the world, the film takes a unique but self conscious look at the societal rot and unease going on at the heart of Greek unrest.
What I saw in this film was a 'complex' assembly of dialectic opositions: generational, political, sexual. Felt some dialogues too obvious for being deliberately austere and clear. I Liked the mise en scène, colors, cinematography in general, didn't get the stress in the dancing and weird stuff which resemble biology/nature vs. politics/culture. Good.
A film about decay; in architecture, in loved ones, in friendships, in relationships. Yet finding some degree of hope and worth in carrying on as well. Tsangari has made a mature, reflective and visually stunning work here at the forefront of new greek cinema. Labed just great here in lead role constanly in a mode of reaction and reflection. Relationships seem authentic added to the power of the projection.
From a country that is trying to rediscover itself, come a string of films that share a common style: they all feel to be void of the human emotional undercoat and delivering quirky, and somewhat perversely captivating material that might seem disjointed for those looking for a conventional storytelling but is rewarding for those who are looking for alternative manifestations of them.
the Dogtooth/Attenberg relationship is not dissimilar to Ulrich Seidl’s fiction films Dog Days and Import/Export, in that the former are dark, snarky and cynical in their social observations, whilst the latter possess a more humanitarian disposition and wisely refrain from didacticism...
Las mejores escenas de baile de toda la historia del cine. oiurahedsfjkasfldsa. ¿Por qué demonios todas las películas griegas que veo tienen las escenas de baile más estéticas y sublimes de todo el universo?
so horribly underwhelming, I am in a state of shock at the attention this so-called greek new wave is geting.... It is absolutely bewildering.
