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>

Well written character driven film
25 November 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film reminded me why I like to watch independent films; well written characters that we can all identify with. I'm Italian not Greek and I have family members who endured a lot of what the lead characters in this film were subject to, so I agree with the NY Times review, I found the film charming and would watch it again. The acting was excellent all round and it was good to see that local filmmakers are getting acclaim. I also liked the music because it wasn't that usual whiny middle eastern sound that most Greek music has. Does anyone know where i can buy this soundtrack for my girlfriend who is Greek? Also is this film only available on VHS or do they have it on DVD too?
