Greek screenwriter Efthymis Filippou doesn't tend to make films that the general public would consider "normal." Though he's only actually had two films made, they were both with Giorgos Lanthimos, who you may know as the director of the 2009 Foreign Language Oscar nominated Dogtooth as well as last year's Toronto International Film Festival movie Alps. Now Filippou is back with a new film that he co-wrote, and while Lanthimos didn't direct the film, it's still just as bizarre.

Flix.gr has premiered the first trailer for L, a new comedy from director Babis Makridis, which is set to debut at this year's Sundance Film Festival. Check it out below.

This is typically the place where I would tell you what the film is about, but honestly, it's so damn weird that I think we're all just better off if I give you the official synopsis from the Sundance website.
A man lives in his car. He’s 40 and separated from his wife and kids, who live in a different car. They meet in parking lots. A professional driver, the man delivers honey to a narcoleptic man and often dreams of his friend, who was killed when a hunter mistook him for a bear. Frequently late delivering honey, the man is fired, and his driving skills are questioned. Thrust into existential uncertainty, he abandons “car life” and joins a rogue motorbike gang.

The script was co-written by Makridis and the film stars Aris Servetalis, Makis Papadimitriou, Lefteris Mathaios, Nota Tserniafski, and Stavros Raptis.
