A satire of life in modern Greece, presented through a series of different stories about sex. We see several couples and their relation with sex in parallel stories that come together in a hilarious way as the film progresses.
Tsiou is a comedy that gains more and more admirers through the years especially among people of younger ages. The film manages to capture the atmosphere of an abandoned Athens in the middle of august. A circle of misconceptions starts when a junkie is looking for his heroin dose in the abandoned city. This is one of the few times that you get to see in film how the real Athens looks like not only in the areas cleaned up for the 2004 Olympics(in order to show to the outside world the new clean look of the city). Îts a glimpse on Omonoia square and the area around it, and of course the junkies that live in these places. Beside the dialog is smart, fast and at most times hilariously funny. I just wished more filmmakers followed the example of this low budget beautiful film and presented us with films that are real and true in their intentions.
