A down and out gambler goes after a buried treasure of gold
Alexis Kardaras directs "Guiness" with the help of the veteran Nikos Panayotopoulos on the script- yet it's the direction that wins the audience, and not the writing. "Guiness" has a somewhat simplistic plot with no impressive twists and turns, and it is almost entirely predictable. However, we can easily take a keen interest on the characters: especially the "Policeman", played expertly by Antonis Kafetzopoulos- here you can see this creative bond between the two men (Kardaras & Kafetzopoulos) expanding, a bond that flourished with "Plato's Academy" (2009) later; and you can trace the roots of this bond that can be found back to "I Gynaika einai Skliros Anthropos" (2005) and "I listeia" (1999). All in all a film you can easily watch and spend a pleasant 1 hr. & 1/2 with.
