A mysterious underground outfit, going by the name of «Alps», offers bereaved individuals a very unusual service: They stand in for their dearly departed. Landing on the global movie scene like an über-talented extraterrestrial, Greek auteur Yorgos Lanthimos (Dogtooth) has been crafting a cinematic product all his own. This time around he engages with the idea of substitutes, though we all know no one could walk in his shoes. Picking up where his first solo feature Kinetta left off, Alps is a game of elaborate reenactments. Only this time it’s more busi ness than pleasure, since the activity is being used to alleviate pain. (Dimitri Eipides)
