While on a fishing trip in the Aegean Sea, six men decide to play Chevalier, a game that measures every aspect of who they are. Things will be compared. Blood will be spilled. At the end of the game, one man will emerge as the best and receive a signet ring as a trophy of his accomplishment. With her third feature, Athina Rachel Tsangari (ATTENBERG) further solidifies her place as a master of the Greek cinema new wave, with a cleverly written script by Tsangari and co–writer Efthymis Filippou (DOGTOOTH, ALPS, and THE LOBSTER) that is an acute and humorous study of male egotism. CHEVALIER is an absurdist farce that explores the competitiveness of male relationships as could only be observed by a female auteur.
