The rules are simple: never go beyond the garden walls, stay inside to be protected, and “only when the DOGTOOTH falls out will the children be prepared to face the dangers of the outside world”. And the biggest danger of all? Daddy. Home is where the horror begins as a father and mother exert complete control over their adult children. That is, until an outsider brought in to satisfy the needs of the eldest son brings with her the wonders of sex and VHS tapes. Dubbed “perverse,” “bizarre,” and downright “weird,” Yorgos Lanthimos’ international breakthrough put not only the director, but the whole of Greek Cinema on the map upon its debut and took its rightful place in the pantheon of “f*cked-up” movies.

In Greek with English subtitles.
