Greek new wave has brought us exciting movies such as Yorgos Lanthimos's Dogtooth and Athina Rachel Tsangari's Attenberg. Now we have Alexandros Avranas's Miss Violence. … At her 11th birthday party, Angeliki (Chloe Bolota) kills herself by jumping from the apartment balcony, and the family insist to visiting welfare officials that it must have been an accident. But there's an eerie dysfunction and unhappiness in this family. … Miss Violence is a tale of abuse and denial, about people who live in a claustrophobically enclosed world. … Avranas owes a good deal to Michael Haneke and to the Mexican auteur Jorge Michel Grau and his own family nightmare We Are What We Are.
