Storyline

Set in the Queens neighborhood known as "Little Athens", ASTORIA centers around a blue-collar Greek-American family and its struggle to hold on to the American Dream. It follows the journey of 28-year-old Alex and his desire to escape his stagnant neighborhood and pursue an off-beat dream that will take him to the lost tomb of Alexander the Great. Alex must overcome his Old World-minded father's plans - expanding the family business, a small corner eatery, and contending with some local wiseguys intent on collecting his dad's gambling debt. When Alex becomes enchanted with a beautiful iconographer, visiting from Greece, things take another turn... Written by Marevan Pictures <marevanpictures@aol.com>

Pretty bad
11 April 2003 | by See all my reviews

Pretty bad, all the way around; Terrible acting, bad camera work, bad message. I was hoping for something a little more uplifting. Instead I was treated to a slice of the seedy underside of Astoria, replete with gambling addictions, mafia-type loan sharks and a host of unlikeable characters.

If there were already a couple of dozen movies about the positive aspects of the greek immigrant community, a movie such as this might have provided an alternative view.
