Bleak Originality in Full Force

'The Lobster' is one of the most original films I've seen at the cinema. Based on the premise alone, this weird tale intrigues. But the weirdness doesn't stop there. The presentation, performances, and tone are far removed from any kind of reality. Yet, the characters and their ambitions for love still come through in a bizarrely relatable way. Only in a surface sense. You can easily see the true meanings behind the facade of lunacy. The business of the hotel represents the societal pressure of conforming to committed relationships. Their rules of romantic engagement and governing viewpoints enforce a strict mentality; that of which being in a committed relationship is far superior to being single, no matter the lack of actual romance. It's a harsh point that is made all the more...

Yorgos Lanthimos stellt die Speerspitze dar der griechischen Neuen Welle. Seine Filme sind gezeichnet von Sadismus und Grausamkeiten. Die Lacher in seinen "Komödien" (sofern es welche sind), bleiben einem im Hals stecken. The Lobster ist sein erster Film, der in englischer Sprache inszeniert wurde und Stars wie Colin Farrell, Rachel Weisz und Lea Seydoux bietet.

Sein Stil jedenfalls wurde durch die Übersetzung ins Englische nicht beeinträchtigt. Der Plot spielt in der Zukunft.

The Lobster - Movie Review

Loner Leader: "We dance alone. That's why we only play electronic music".

The Lobster takes place in a dystopian near future, single people, according to the laws of The City, are taken to The Hotel, where they are obliged to find a romantic partner in forty-five days or are transformed into beasts and sent off into The Woods.

The Lobster is a film that's both strange and completely bizarre, but rather brilliant as well. It's one of those movies that's so different with it's story and visuals that it's quite intriguing to watch. The cinematography was tremendous and the movie isn't predicable, as many times it takes a different turn for the best. Yorgos Lanthimos knows what he's doing and I can tell what he was going for when it came to the self aware moments. Every choice...
