The Killing of a Sacred Deer

“The title of the film refers to Ifigenia in Aulida, written by Euripides,” said the director at the Cannes press conference of the film. Iigigenia, daughter of Agamemnon, is about to be sacrificed, as the oracle says, because the Greeks in Aulida “Agamemnin struggles between the suffering of the father and the duty to fulfill the desire of the gods.” At the time of the sacrifice, Ifigenia disappears from the altar, and a deer with its cut neck appears in its place.
Not to forget the screening of the Euripidian play by Michael Cacoyannis – Iphigenia (1977) – nominated for the American Academy Awards as “the best foreign film” in ’78, losing a vote in favor of La Living devant variety (1977).
