'''''Dogtooth''''' (2009) is a Greek arthouse drama that won the "Un Certain Regard" award at Cannes. A husband and wife keep their three adult-age children within the walls of their expansive country estate, warning them of the supposed dangers of the outside world. The parents explain that the children can leave only when their "dogtooth" (i.e. their canine) falls out. Having no other options, the kids spend their days engaging in strange games and learning about the world around them. Their only outside visitor is Christina, a security guard at the father's workplace, who is brought in for sexual interaction with the son. As she interacts with the children, she reveals concepts and introduces outside realities that spark their curiosity and tantalize them to escape.

Added DiffLines:

* FanDisservice: The sex scenes - the ones between Christina and the son are joyless and clinical, while the other ones are squicky because of the incest and the innocence of the children, who don't understand the significance of the action.
