The Lobster

Location: Filmhuis De Zwarte Doos

Yorgos Lanthimos, Gr 2015
English spoken – Dutch subtitles

 

The Lobster is a satire of society’s obsession with couples, set in a dystopian world in which the single are arrested and sent to a hotel where they have 45 days to find a partner or else be turned into an animal of their choice. The premise is that monogamous relationships are what distinguish us from beasts. Those who fail to find a partner are therefore unworthy of the human race.

The hotel has strict rules, reflecting a society of uncompromising order, where conformity is primordial.

As his deadline nears, protagonist David (Colin Farrell) who has been left by his wife, escapes from the hotel and joins a group of renegade “loners” in a forest. They turn out to be just as intolerant as the hotel managers.
