A darkly surreal look at three teenagers confined to an isolated country estate and kept under strict rule and regimen by their parents - an alternately hilarious and nightmarish experiment of manipulation and oppression.

An original no holds barred satire on raising children with good intention parental/social dogma. The parents in the film have gone to great lengths to control the children's living environment and punish/reward their conduct. But can the grownups control the kid's mind like trained dogs? Violent/disturbing and nudity scenes.

A dark and absurdist comedy about an insular Greek family living behind a walled fortress of a home caught up in its Freudian dramas and nightmares. A searing indictment against homeschooling and toxic parents.

Great film! Dark, funny in twisted, grim way. SPOILER ALERT! The libr synopsis and several patron comments reveal too much for many people.

I liked The Lobster but not this one - definitely not hilarious.

An art-house piece from Greece, about a dysfunctional family at its extremes. Funny at times, it is worth a look for people who enjoy unconventional cinema. Subtitles.

Sick and twisted. Nothing at all like "Lobster"...which was clever and interesting.

Genius, with all redeeming qualities! See "The Lobster" in theaters now! Same director!
