It was clearly something original and I really liked the fact that the director managed to create a dystopian future without one single futuristic gadget or... read more

¿Why success spoiled Giorgos Lanthimos? Artificial, incoherent, confusing, it is not a convincing world as in "Canino"; the stars are wasted. I preferred the unknowns -for non greeks- stars of his first films.

"26.4. (Kirjasto/BD) Menköön nyt sitten taas niin, että en tiedä mistään mitään, mutta itselleni The Lobster toimi vallan mainiosti. Kiehtovalla ajatuksella päästään yllättävän pitkälle, kun homma pidetään näinkin minimalistisena. Idea maailmasta, jossa parisuhde on pakollinen, tai muuten sinut muutetaan 45 päivän kuluttua valitsemaksesi eläimeksi, on hyvä. Se ei ole erinomainen, mutta tämä kreikkalainen jannu osaa rakentaa tarinan palaset kiinnostavaksi kokonaisuudeksi,"


Brandon Carreon posted a review 7 months, 2 weeks ago

“Retorcida y cruda, The Lobster es una historia no convencional acerca de la soledad y el amor. Muy rara pero a la vez muy unica. Yorgos lathimos (o como carajos se escribe) tiene una direccion bien preciosa, muy simetrica, que bebe mucho de Kubrick.y una banda sonora escalofriante.

sin duda, de las peliculas "romanticas" mas raras que he visto..................... y me gusto mucho.” read more
