Last year, the entire “Sound On Sight” team placed Giorgos Lanthimos’ family- based drama Dogtooth on their top five films of 2009 (Listen to our review on podcast #165 or read my review here). The Dogtooth director who has kept busy preparing for his next film, has also been preocupied producing Athina Rachel Tsangari’s Attenberg. Little is known yet about the much anticipated film but we do know it features an original score from Radiohead’s Jonny Greenwood who also provided the score for There Will Be Blood.
The second film from Greece which has everyone excited is Yiannis Economidis’s Mahairovgaltis. Again not much is known about the film since it is yet to screen anywehre but they have just released a trailer. Here is the synopsis and the trailer will follow after the break.
It’s the story of Nick, a man who lives in the country; a man who lives for the here and now. When his father dies, he’s urged to leave small town life behind and head to Athens where his uncle offers him food, board and an easy job but Nick’s life takes a sharp turn once he arrives in the metropolis.
