Greece. Dir. Alexandros Avranas. 2013, 99 mins. Digital projection. U.S. premiere.With Themis Panou, Eleni Roussinou, Reni Pittaki. Unhappy birthday: The day of her party, 11-year-old Angeliki jumps to her death from her family’s fourth-floor balcony. The ensuing investigation into her seemingly inexplicable suicide gradually reveals unspeakable horrors lurking beneath the family’s eerily placid surface. The latest in the remarkable wave of iconoclastic new Greek cinema that yielded Dogtooth and Attenberg, Miss Violence unfolds with a skin-crawling sense of deadpan detachment before it explodes in shattering tragedy.
