Storyline

The film follows the parallel and entwining stories as well as the common fates of some very different young people for 24 hours in the summertime: from the prison to the corridors of the airport and from the Saronikos beaches to the Psiloritis mountain. The common characteristic of the heroes is that they have inherited from their nefarious parents various problems. In spite of the fact that they used to be neutral, due to specials conditions they will be forced to grow up. Written by Anonymous

Psychremia, be cool and above all keep your sense of humor
4 January 2010 | by (Cyprus) – See all my reviews

I have been waiting for this movie to come out ever since I heard about it, me being a major Nikos Perakis fan. After watching it over and over again, since I actually miss the journey it takes me on, I can safely say that as far as I'm concerned, this movie has it all: Colorful and deep, multidimensional characters, a logical development (which is no little feat in modern Greek movies I'm sorry to say), a climaxing ending, and dare I say, catharsis?

The storyline is simple: we are invited into the lives of a strong cast of different youngsters for a couple of days in modern day Greece, while they are going through some intense times, all socially connected in some way and all sharing an important fact: they all come from corrupt and criminal parents, some already incarcerated and some on their way to prison while the story develops. Perakis takes his time presenting us his characters, I feel we actually get to know them pretty well and even like them, or at least some aspects of them, and we get to see a lot of aspects :) It takes a while for all the puzzle pieces to start falling into place, but once they do, at about halfway through the movie when the characters start interacting with each other while rushing to their fated destinations, it is truly a social analyst viewer's pleasure. All that, laced with a sense of humor, not entirely white, atmospheric soundtrack, add some great acting, great directing and you have a wonderful movie.

What is it ultimately about? It is about relationships, it is about the sins of the fathers and their children's choices, its about finding common ground above all social differences and rivalry, too many to just list. I'm sure the careful viewer can enjoy finding even more.
