Pioneering Greek director Yorgos Lanthimos’ festival favourite Alps (Alpeis, 2011), the controversial filmmaker’s follow-up to the Oscar-nominated, cult smash Dogtooth (2009), is another weird and wonderful exploration of human psychology, and stars Stavros Psyllakis, Aris Servetalis and Johnny Vekris. To celebrate the eagerly anticipated DVD release of Alps on Monday 11 March, courtesy of UK distributor Artificial Eye, we have THREE copies of the film to offer to our world cinema-loving followers. This is an exclusive competition for our Facebook and Twitter fans, so if you haven’t already, ‘Like’ us at facebook.com/CineVueUK or follow us @CineVue before answering the question below.
Revolving around a group calling themselves ‘the Alps’ – a service providing stand-ins in for the recently deceased, hired by relatives, friends or colleagues to aid the grieving process – Lanthimos’ latest bounds from one bizarre set-piece to the next in a dazzling mix of black humour, unsettling drama and delicious ambiguity. Winner of three international film awards, including a Fipresci prize and the Golden Osella award for best screenplay at the Venice Film Festival 2011, Alps confirms Lanthimos as one of the most exciting emerging directors in world cinema.
To be in with a chance of winning one of THREE DVD copies of Alps, just answer the following simple question:
