European, American Critics Like Attenberg, Alps

filmsNew Greek filmmakers are getting better reviews abroad than in Greece.Greek films are included in the best international film festivals (for instance, Boy Eating the Bird’s Food by Ektoras Lygizos in Karlovy Vary International Film Festival and Out of Frame (Titloi Telous) by George Zois in Venice Film Festival), while some of them are being screened in projection rooms (even if screened in closed-circuit).
Greeks films are growing in esteem from film critics. The film Attenberg directed by Athena Rachel Tsangari  was one of the Best movies of 2012, according to the New York Times. “More than a paradox of moral and psychological maturity, the film is also a story of socialization, as well as a study on our animal essence,” Times critic Dennis Lim said about Attenberg.
A few weeks ago, the British Guardian published a critics top 10 list that included the film Alps directed by Yorgos Lanthimos, which was screened in Britain during 2012 and ranked ninth among the reviewers.
