The 23rd Athens International Film Festival welcomes Darren Aronofsky's "mother!"

The new, shocking movie of the famous director Darren Aronofsky will make its greek premiere at the 23rd Athens International Film Festival.

A couple’s life is disrupted when some uninvited guests upset their routine. The guests’ indiscreet behavior turns to a disconcerting challenge that reveals the cracks of the family home and redefines concepts such as love, devotion and sacrifice.

Darren Aronofsky deals once again with the nightmarish descent of the troubled body (“Black Swan”, “The Wrestler”) and spirit (“Requiem for a Dream”) of a person at the end of their rope. He makes an immodest study on climaxing paranoia and explores the secret desires, the innate fears and the urban neuroses of a world “accustomed to madness”. The ironically photogenic protagonists (Jennifer Lawerence, Havier Bardem, Michelle Pfeiffer) are a stark contrast to Aronofsky’ s fascinating film.

With evident references to Polanski's psychological thrillers, he balances between devotion and insanity and returns, with the help of a glamorous cast, back to the chilling starting point that defined his career. A provocative psychodrama, a religious allegory and an extreme thriller that “you have to see to believe”.

Darren Aronofsky's "mother!" is the cinemagazine.gr' s present to its commited audience! At Monday the 2nd of October, and after 12 spectacular premiere nights, Athens International Film Festival will bid it's audience farewell with the highly anticipated new film of Darren Aronofsky.

The screening will take place at Danaos cinema at 22:00 (2/10/2017) and will be accessible ONLY with invitations provided from cinemagazine.gr. Stay tuned for more info.
