Interview: Aggeliki Papoulia – ALPS

First introduced to international auds as the eldest daughter in Yorgos Lanthimos’ freakshow family portrait known as Dogtooth (2009), Aggeliki Papoulia returns to the fold holding the majority of the chips as Monte Rosa in ALPS. A nurse by day and a caretaker type character who moonlights during her off hours as part of band of well-intentioned misfits, Monte Rosa helps folk deal with the separation and grieving processes and distinctly is the most committed of the troupe playing teenage tennis player, English-speaking lover, best friend to the blind, a fake daughter and the perhaps a real daughter. In Greek and amusingly English dialogue, Papoulia offers an intense performance as someone who is either borderline crazy, mentally fatigued or simply, performing beyond the call of duty.

This interview was conducted at the 2011 Toronto Int. Film Festival and Kino Lorber releases in limited theatres this month.
