Raising the stakes for the Greek weird wave to pitch black comedy, Pity is a deadpan satire about a man who becomes addicted to sadness. Giannis Drakopoulos puts in a calculatedly inexpressive performance to extraordinary effect, playing a lawyer whose wife is in a coma. Everyone around him goes to great lengths to comfort him, an arrangement he goes to increasing lengths to prolong. Directed by Babis Makridis and co-written by Dogtooth and Killing of a Sacred Deer writer, Efthimis Filippou.
