Opening with the inexplicable suicide of eleven-year-old Angeliki in the middle of her own birthday party, it's plain to see that 'Miss Violence' demands of its viewers a certain threshold of pain – especially given that the girl plunges to her death while Leonard Cohen's death-camp waltz ‘Dance Me to the End of Love’ plays on the stereo. Yet if Angeliki's seemingly typical middleclass Greek family bears any emotional wounds from this harrowing loss, these are certainly not on public display. On the contrary, her single mother, grandparents, and siblings present a perfectly composed front. And Child Protective Services are beginning to wonder.
