The acting is excellent throughout, each performer managing to play up the comic aspects with a new definition of deadpan.

This remarkably enjoyable film undoubtedly demands a second viewing -- and most importantly, proves that Lanthimos isn't just a one-hit wonder.

Lanthimos's film Dogtooth disturbed and impressed a lot of people, and I doubt his new film ALPS will receive a different reaction.

Giorgos Lanthimos' "Alps" is a gimmick brought to life, a conceptual idea of a social situation filmed with automatons and containing but an illustration of a concept.

It will certainly keep you interested, but the ending lacks the strength to make it work completely. [Full review in Spanish]

In fact, you probably shouldn't be reading this review if you have an interest in seeing the film.
November 25, 2012
Emphatically weird, watchable and niche.
November 13, 2012
It's hard to see what, if anything, Lanthimos is saying about modern Greece. And without that clear focus, the film feels a bit off-piste.

What does it mean?
November 9, 2012
From the Greek filmmakers behind the acclaimed anti-thriller Dogtooth, this fiendishly inventive drama is just as complex and telling.
November 8, 2012
Lanthimos is such a distinctive film-maker and nothing he does is without interest - but this is a misfire.
November 8, 2012
The movie's morbidly funny once you get the hang of it, and climaxes deftly, but for too long Lanthimos feels like he's stalling for no especial purpose.
November 8, 2012
Requires multiple viewings to pick this one apart.

The reality it takes place in is heightened just enough to make the concept feel ironic, but then all attempt at genuine sentiment subsequently falls flat.
November 4, 2012
Lanthimos delivers another heady dose of weirdness. Loopier than a frog sandwich but rather wonderful.
October 30, 2012
Absurdly amusing (in places), rigorously directed, and more interesting on an intellectual level than an emotional one.
October 11, 2012
An hour and a half of darkening absurdism.
October 2, 2012
Helps make the case that Lanthimos might be a worthy, more entomological successor to Luis Buuel.
September 20, 2012
The film takes some deciphering, but once a viewer cracks its code "Alps" opens up into something expansive and rich.
September 6, 2012
The movie contains some of the same elements that made [Dogtooth] so startling but they tend to float around rather than coalesce into a singular perspective.
