The Uncle (Stric)

The Uncle

Yugoslavia, late 1980s. The family are hastily making their final preparations for Christmas Eve dinner: their beloved uncle from Germany will be parking his Mercedes in front of the house any moment now, and everything must be ready. But are things really as they seem? 

If a Christmas movie by way of Yorgos Lanthimos or Michael Haneke sounds up your alley, you’ll love The Uncle. Ingeniously toying with narrative structure, the film offers up a dark and strange examination of the cycles of power and social hierarchy - with a touch of revenge thriller thrown in for good measure.
