After walking out of ATTENBERG, I couldn't decide if I really hated it, or really loved it. I still can't decide. ATTENBERG stretches the arthouse genre to "WTF!?"

For all the eccentricity, the film feels unexpectedly personal in addressing experiences everyone goes through at some point in their lives.

Works somewhat as a perverse droll coming-of-age film

Bittersweet, Greek coming-of-age drama about an inexperienced young woman who explores bisexuality while caring for her terminally-ill father.

The face of actress Ariane Labed lifts this quiet, dour character study by filmmaker Athina Rachel Tsangari.

Tsangari's art-house minimalism, which never lets us forget we're watching a movie, still permits a surprising degree of tender emotion.

Using occasional song-and-dance numbers with a melancholy Godardian kick, [Tsangari] creates a world that's off-center and alive with loneliness.

Part of the film's success comes from Labed's performance as Marina, who infuses all that weirdness with a barely there vulnerability.

Attenberg gets down in the emotional muck where life, death and sex intertwine. And like those life experiences, watching it can be both awkward and poignant.

"Attenberg" is a three-layered love story, anatomizing the mysterious emotions of grief, friendship and erotic attraction.

Perpetually off-balance and maybe just a little too satisfied with its cynicism

The drama, at its core, is simple and conventional, but it has the aura of science fiction.

Tsangari distinguishes herself from her predecessor's freak-show formalism with an underlying humanism and freewheeling playfulness.

In that isolation, and in the marooned hopelessness of the protagonists, there is a hint that normal life may have become too much to cope with, and that its rules of engagement need to be learned afresh.

The underlying idea is that life goes on whatever we do, that human beings are merely part (and not the most important one) of a larger ecological system involving the mineral, vegetable and animal world.

Impressively directed and superbly acted, Attenberg plays like a light-hearted, quirky version of Dogtooth, though its relative lack of plot means that it's difficult to engage with the characters on an emotional level.

Perhaps viewed under the influence of drugs or drink the film might spring to comic life, but taken straight it is far more likely to get on your nerves.
