Marina, a 23 year-old girl who is emotionally stunted, lives with her dying architect father in a prototype factory town by the sea. Finding the human species strange and repellent, she keeps her distance. Instead she stubbornly watches the mammal documentaries of Sir David Attenborough.

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 disfunction, estrangement, and sexual inexperience, Attenberg doubles up as state-of-the nation commentary on modern Greece.
