Centaurs are creatures from the Greek mythology with a head and torso of a man on the body of a horse. Supposedly, they lived in Greek forests. Some people who believe they really exist are willing to pay large sums for a meeting with them. In Hotel Centaur, located in picturesque surroundings, a group of colourful eccentrics organise a get-together. Young Greek cinema is definitely in a great shape. The story seems to engage in an intriguing dialogue with Jorgos Lanthimos’s films. It is a unique combination of a sublime from, the absurd, the sun and a social satire. The atmosphere and rhythm of the surprising script is intensified by the score composed by sound artist Dimitra Sofroniou.
