Twin sisters, Beatrice and Zoe, are in love with Ray, a philosopher-bank robber driven by visions of the end the world. Though Beatrice and Ray are married, Ray elopes with free-spirited Zoe and hides out in a motel after a bank heist. Meanwhile, Beatrice files for divorce as two enigmatic entities from the Bardo interzones take interest in their fates in Antero Alli's new underground film, a heady cocktail chaser of crime, metaphysics, and amour fou.
Flamingos, the terrific recent feature by Antero Alli, uses the claustrophobic situation of a bank robber holed up in a motel room with his girlfriend to create a kind of intense chamber drama in which the utopian dreams of two highly irrational people crash into each other, and into the stubborn resistance of the real world. Flamingos provides compelling human drama as it maintains a humorous, detached stance towards that drama, a stance Antero Alli has perfected in many of his films.
