Our take

Athina Rachel Tsangari fulfils the promise of the Greek New Wave with this unclassifiably weird and provocative sophomore feature. A deadpan, off-kilter look at familial dysfunction, estrangement, and sexual inexperience, Attenberg doubles up as state-of-the nation commentary on modern Greece.
