A waste of money and talent.
12 October 2009 | by See all my reviews

You probably know already what this film is about so I am not going to bother with the story. It is supposed to be based on true facts but I don't think this is enough to convince anybody to watch it. Athanasia is a really boring and cliché-ridden melodrama, similar to thousands of stories that the TV serials tell. Giorgos Karamichos is not so convincing here and makes me wonder why he is even considered to be a good actor. Vangelis Mourikis who is probably Greece's finest actor of today, is wasted here. You have to be a total hack (talentless filmmaker) to have somebody like Mourikis taking part in your film and wasting him like that. The cinematography is kind of flat too- would look great for a television movie but leaves much to be desired since this is a feature film. This is better than rubbish such as Soula Ela Xana or Alter Ego but still doesn't mean much. It is a film that will appeal to old people so you can probably suggest it to your mom or grandma to watch. I give it 2 stars thanks to Mourikis and thanks to some well-composed shots.
