The Alps is a secret society including a nurse, a gym coach, a gymnast, and a paramedic. They offer a unique service: the recently bereaved can hire them to act as surrogates for the deceased loved ones—wearing their clothes, adopting their mannerisms, etc.—in order to help them adjust to their loss.

What are critics saying?


Variety by

The cumulative force of the screenplay and Yorgos Mavropsaridis' editing is not as hypnotic as in "Dogtooth," perhaps in part because those familiar with Lanthimos' m.o. will know what to expect.


Time Out by Keith Uhlich

Puzzling and provocative, Alps has a lingering power and an effect that is thrillingly difficult to define.


Village Voice by Nick Pinkerton

It's quibbling to draw up columns denoting what Lanthimos, a difficult but undeniable talent, does right and does wrong. He's seemingly working intuitively here, and whatever missteps he makes while feeling his way forward, he manages to pass quite near to one of the essential conundrums of being human.
