A nurse, a paramedic, a gymnast and her coach have formed a service for hire. They stand in for dead people by appointment, hired by the relatives, friends or colleagues of the deceased. The company is called Alps, because the Alps can stand in for any mountain, but nothing can stand in for the Alps. The Academy Award-nominated director of DOGTOOTH, Yorgos Lanthimos, returns with another exploration of synthetic worlds colliding with “actual” reality. “A truly original work and a masterpiece of contemporary existentialism, confirming Lanthimos as Europe's most pertinent hope in an arthouse cinema suffocating in the alienation-boredom of Haneke et al." – CinemaScope
