delightful, innovative, funny & alternative sad. more than 'the next big greek film' a great film. must see. the family dynamic, fun dance steps and deep rooted fears are trascendent in this very fine movie.

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 emotionalFrom 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.

An interesting, scenic painting of Greek landscape and urban microcosm. Interesting choice of making a coming of age story as confusing for the audience as for the protagonist in the film. But hey, maybe thats a good thing, the confusion.An interesting, scenic painting of Greek landscape and urban microcosm. Interesting choice of making a coming of age story as confusing for the audience as for the protagonist in the film. But hey, maybe thats a good thing, the confusion. Right?

The cinematography is worthy of a TEN, no question. This is not about escapism, the colors, the contrast, the scenery sucked me in. But what about the nudity? Does 'but its EUROPEAN ergo it's okay' really explain all that needs to be explained? What about the dynamic in the homosexual exploration of the protagonist-why is that element unexamined, why does the director tie it in the growth of the protagonist?
Too many 'what do I make of this' to make me take Attenberg more seriously than viewing it as an attempt for a euro art film.

New Greek filmmakers like Tsangari have potential, but need to write and read and watch films more, so that films like Attenberg are one day soon taken as a good pat on the back, but not as finalized products of creativity.
