The film "The Alps", which is the fourth feature film of George Lanthimos, will participate in the upcoming festival in Venice (August 31st to September 10th). Two years after "Dogtooth" in Cannes, Lanthimos is "knocking on the door" of a second leading European Film Festival.

This is a great success if we take into account the movies, but also the people whom the film will compete with during the film festival. You never know where to start and where to end. There will also be Roman Polanski with his film «Carnage» and Jodie Foster, Kate Winslet, George Clooney in the film «Ides of March», in which he plays himself together with Ryan Gosling, David Cronenberg with the movie «A dangerous method» and Viggo Mortensen and Keira Knightley, William Friedkin with the movie «Killer Joe» (starring Matthew McConaughey), but also Tomas Alfredsson with the long-awaited «Tinker tailor soldier spy», based on the novel by John Le Carré with selected cast: Gary Oldman, Peter Firth, Tom Hardy, John Hurt.

According Feelgood Entrtainment, the summary of the "Alps" is: "When the end is near, the Alps are here. A nurse, a genitor, a rhythmic gymnastics athlete and her coach have created a group. They replace dead people. They are recruited by the friends and relatives of the dead. The group is called the Alps and its leader, the genitor is called Mont Blanc. Group members are obliged to act according to rules set by the leader. The nurse does not obey these rules."

"The Alps" will make its premiere in Greek cinemas on 27th of October. The cast consists of Ariane Labelle, Anggeliki Papoulia and Aris Servetalis, and the script is the work of Efthimis Filippou and George Lanthimos, who also collaborated in the movie "Dogtooth".

Let us remind that last year at the film festival in Venice also participated the movie «Attenberg» by Athina Rachel Tsangari, in which the leading parts were performed by Lanthimos and Labelle, and the latter received an award for her performance.
