Raak mij aan! Touch me!

With a recognizable style full of dryly funny, completely neutral dialogues, Lanthimos once again provides villainous commentary on society.

Lanthimos comments on Greek society in particular and human shortcomings in general. Everyone always plays a role - a principle that is brought to a head in Alps.

They call themselves 'Alps'. It is a mysterious society; the four members - a nurse, a paramedic, a gymnast and her trainer - are not allowed to reveal anything about their activities to non-Alpines. In their spare hours they rent themselves out to relatives to take the place of a recently deceased person, according to their own words to facilitate the grieving process. But whether role-playing is really that healthy is seriously doubtful.
