Friends Ariane Labed (l.) and Evangelia Randou get friendly in Attenberg.

Greece’s official entry for the Academy Awards, 2010’s Attenberg is a deadpan comedy-drama film by Greek filmmaker Athina Rachel Tsangari.

The coming-of-age story concerns plucky Marina (Ariane Labed), a 23-year-old woman who lives in a small factory town by the sea where she passes her time watching Sir David Attenborough’s nature programs, listening to the proto-punk songs of Suicide, goofing with her only friend Bella (Evangelia Randou), and tending to her ailing father (Vangelis Mourikis). When a visiting engineer (Yorgos Lanthimos, director of the Academy Award-nominated Dogtooth) comes to town, the two form a tentative relationship that pushes Marina into contact with the strange and complex world of adulthood.

Athina Rachel Tsangari's beautiful tale of a father-daughter relationship turns the microscope on humans' animal behaviour

The elaborate slurp of the opening kiss, the wacky walks, lonely 23-year-old Mariana (Ariane Labed) and her dad, Spyros (Vangelis Mourikis) pretending to be gorillas on their hotel bed: there's moments in Attenberg that are kooky, quirky and all the other labels that director Athina Rachel Tsangari hates. They're the bits that singled the film out on its cinematic release last year, but caught alone they're red herrings, eye-catching add-ons to a beautifully told story about a father-daughter relationship that's coming into bloom just a little too late. »

Attenberg Trailer Displays An Unconventional Coming Of Age Drama

29 February 2012 4:58 PM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Sometimes a trailer hits that is so bizarre that it's difficult to explain its appeal. This is how I feel about Strand Releasing's theatrical trailer for the heralded Greek drama Attenberg. It's a peculiar mix of ambiguous yet engrossing dialogue, awkward but explicit sexual imagery, and stern yet funny walks that has me deeply intrigued. After winning acclaim abroad, including honors at the 2010 Venice Film Festival, this provocative drama was selected as Greece's submission for the Best Foreign Film Oscar. Though it did not make the Academy's final cut of nominees, this trailer courtesy of Yahoo is proof that Attenberg could still score a U.S. release. Raised in an isolated factory town by the sea, Marina (Ariane Labed) is a misfit and a late-bloomer. At 23 she's never been kissed, and her only friends are her oddball bestie, Bella (Evangelia Randou), and her fatally ill father (Vangelis Mourikis). With each, »
