    From a country that is trying to rediscover itself politically, financially and economically come a string of films (films such as Attenberg, Dogtooth, Alps, L) that share a common style: they all feel to be void of the human emotional undercoat and delivering quirky, and somewhat perversely captivating material that might seem disjointed for those looking for a conventional storytellingFrom a country that is trying to rediscover itself politically, financially and economically come a string of films (films such as Attenberg, Dogtooth, Alps, L) that share a common style: they all feel to be void of the human emotional undercoat and delivering quirky, and somewhat perversely captivating material that might seem disjointed for those looking for a conventional storytelling but is rewarding for those who are looking for alternative manifestations of them.

    The film is much enhanced by the performance of Labed, whose work capturing Marina's moods and contradictions won the best actress award at the 67th Venice Film Festival.

    From the gangly awkwardness of its opening scene - a pleasure-free lesson in kissing - it's clear that Attenberg aims to provoke. Its bored young characters and flat-affect performances recall another innovative Greek drama, "Dogtooth."

    The emotions are quiet, and the connections among the characters feel tentative and fragile. Though it makes no reference to the current economic and political crisis in Greece, Attenberg is suffused with a sense of malaise - of stasis, if you prefer a Greek word - that way well reflect the contemporary national mood.
