Six prosperous Greek men are hanging out on a luxury yacht, spearfishing, swimming and dining, when they decide to play a parlour game in which they will rate each other's performance in a variety of contests.

Who's courageous enough to give blood? Who makes the most convincing phone call home? And yes, who has the biggest dick.

The increasingly absurd results provide a sly and amusing satire of masculine competitiveness directed by Athina Rachel Tsangari, who was the producer on Yorgos Lanthimos's Oscar-nominated Dogtooth. The film is made watchable by a strong cast of actors who make the men sympathetically vulnerable.
