Nothing much, really
8 September 2013 | by (Greece) – See all my reviews

I was impressed by Oikonomidis' short film "Mono Mirizontas Giasemi," and "To Spirtokouto" fascinated me. The everyday decadence of a working-class Greek family, its depiction of contemporary Greek culture, the use of language, great, really great."I Psihi sto Stoma" was overdoing it, repeating the aesthetics of "To Spirtokouto" without much innovation in the script, but still acceptable. On the other hand, "Mahairovgaltis" has nothing much to say. The script is totally missing, the acting is less than OK and has nothing to add to the aesthetics of the movie-plus, the low-life working class theme is no news for Oikonomidis. The movie is flat, no climax whatsoever,the black-and-white aesthetic does not make its point. I only enjoyed the wonderful shots and the photography, but nothing else really.
