It wasn't a comedy!


The Lobster is set in a dystopian near future where single people, according to the rules of the town, are arrested and transferred to the Hotel. There they are obliged to find a matching mate in 45 days. If they fail, they are transformed into an animal of their choosing and released into the woods. A desperate man escapes from the Hotel to the woods where the Loners live and there he falls in love, although it's against their rules. Colin Farrell’s cha­racter’s animal of choice is a lobster.

The Lobster's atmos­phere is pitched at a deliberately oppressive level, and its humor comes from both the sheer insanity of its conceit and the blunt, awkward fashion in which its characters articulate their desires, hopes, fears, and preconceptions about togetherness and aloneness.” – Village Voice – Nick Schager

The Lobster is elegant and eccentric in Lanthimos’s fa­miliar style: the world of the hotel is brilliantly created, and the film cleverly mocks the unexamined strangeness of hotels with all their corporate furniture of leisure and relaxation.” – The Guardian – Peter Bradshaw"
