“Dogtooth”, one of this year’s bizarre and highly original movies, will be shown on the Film4 movie channel again. It is scheduled to be on early next Tuesday morning at 01:35. It was first shown on this channel a couple of weeks ago, but there was a problem with our Sky Digibox: it partly recorded the programme. This time I am determined to watch this disturbingly unusual movie without vexatious interruption.
A short description of the movie from Film4:
“What if your parents had scared you into never leaving your house via a series of lies? Dogtooth is that house, and its three teenage inhabitants have subsisted on a diet of total fiction since birth.”
The film is a very strange dark comedy which contains violence and explicit sex scenes. It was nominated in the category of “foreign language film of the year” at the 31st London Critics’ Circle Film Awards, competing with other notable movies: ‘I Am Love’, ‘Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives’, ‘Of Gods and Men’ and ‘The Secret in Their Eyes’.
