From The Booth
From the internationally acclaimed young Greek director comes a truly absurdist film, effervescent with social commentary, satiric, sometimes droll comedy and a direct link to Salvador Dalí, through the film’s title. David ‘s wife has just left him for another man. As his society dictates, he is institutionalized at a seaside resort with other singles, all of whom have 45 days to find a new partner or they will be turned into the animal of their choice. Back to Dalí, David has chosen a lobster... he has his reasons. Into this absurdist mix are thrown rebellious singles who have escaped the resort and live a semi-feral existence in the nearby woods. Perhaps you are as curious as the actors who were attracted to this project, Colin Farrell (as David), Rachel Weisz, John C Reilly, Léa Seydoux, Ben Whishaw and Olivia Colman. Sometimes it’s okay to take a chance and it’s unlikely that you’ll see another film like this absurdist work.
