Maria Grazia Cucinotta,
A junkie is searching for his dose in an empty Athens...
Tsiou is the name of a junkie that is searching for heroin in Athens in the middle of August, a time where traditionally everyone is away on vacation and every dealer is out of town. But everyone else is looking too and it won't be easy to find with so many competition around.
An excellent independent comedy that despite its low budget depends on its characters and succeeds to entertain.
Tsiou the junkie played by Parisis is excellent and writer/ director Makis Papadimitratos is very talented!
On top of that there is an excellent music score that glues the whole film together.
