Based on the book “Scenes” by award-winning screenwriter, Efthymis Filippou (“Dogtooth,” “The Lobster,” “The Killing of Sacred Deer,”), “Icebergs” is an existential, dark comedy consisting of 14 short vignettes, ranging from the mundane to the absurd.

Showcasing some really interesting textures and ambience, there’s more than one notable technical moment, including one where a puppet sweats. In another similarly adept scene, a puppet cries after falling to the ground sobbing about how much he hates his job waiting tables. Filled with scenes of intense loneliness, despair, and even violence throughout, this is an emotional short. The feeling here is sometimes dark, sometimes light, but always quite deep and well executed.
