Special 30th : Exquisite Corpse
The Shepherds of Calamity
A film chosen by Yorgos Lanthimos
Katina, an impoverished Greek woman, tries to arrange the marriage of her shepherd son, Thanos, to Despina, the daughter of a wealthy landowner. But when Despina’s father, Vlahopoulos refuses to give his blessings.
The building obviously reminded me of Greece because of the columns in Doric style. The night, expressionistic, black and white photography brought to mind this intense, absurd, long sequence in Shepherds of Calamity. It takes place during the night. A religious ceremony in a Greek village which is violently disrupted.
