Yorgos Lanthimos Focus: Kinetta

Yorgos Lanthimos Focus: Kinetta

4 Nov 2017

Kinetta is a desolate Greek resort town, inhabited during the off-season by migrant workers. In this colourless setting, the film studies the cryptic activities of an inscrutable trio: a plainclothes cop with a passion for cars, tape recorders and Russian women, a loner clerk who is a part-time photographer and a hotel maid with aspirations to be an actress. They barely speak, passing the time by staging outlandish re-enactments of local murders. Their efforts are obsessive, the details exhaustive, their purpose questionable.  

This darkly comic and compellingly hypnotic film is the extraordinary debut feature of Yorgos Lanthimos (Dogtooth, Alps and The Lobster), one of Greek cinema’s most acclaimed new directors.
