An unnerving story about a horrid family drama kept behind closed doors, and an elaborate facade where appearances can be deceiving, and nothing is as it seems.

Storyline

To celebrate Aggeliki's eleventh birthday, a well-organised party is held in her honour. Everything is in order, and all the ingredients of a usual birthday gathering are here: a nice and big sugar-glazed cake, happy music, a caring grandfather's embrace--a truly loving family environment. However, is any of this real, or is this an elaborate facade? Little by little, as a devastating act of despair unfolds before a stunned family, wolves and lambs slowly get lured into a web of hideous secrets, and a frantic downward spiral of lies and deceptive appearances. But, in the end, as one unwillingly unravels the sinners' blood-curdling mysteries kept behind closed doors, the plunge into the depths of the human soul and the unfathomable secrets within is inevitable. Written by Nick Riganas

The Banality of Evil
26 July 2014 | by billcr12See all my reviews

This is my second venture into Greek cinema; the first being Dogtooth. Is everyone in that country insane? The concepts are similar in both films which share a controlling father in the lead. This time around, the dad is dancing with his eleven year-old granddaughter when she shortly makes an unexpected and abrupt exit. For the following ninety six minutes we are subjected to four adults and four children behaving very strangely. There is not one light moment and we are witness to an extremely sexually repulsive scene involving a girl and men who are not interested in a loving relationship. The acting is fine, but the actors spend every moment brooding. There is no reason on earth to sit through this tortuous movie.
