A young woman's struggle to overcome life's economic restrictions in order to meet her true will. She is twenty-three and lives with her mother, a compromise she can no longer stand.

During these two months of freedom, she explores her true self and approaches a more poetic and liberal culture, for her, a new way of life that slowly unfolds as she rummages through the belongings that the former renter, a guy her age, has left in the apartment.

I had the pleasure of watching this at the Saloniki Film Festival in December 2010. The director and the main actress were present at the screening and did a Q&A after the movie. I really liked the movie, it was really down to earth and had performances in it, that were worthy to watch. I cannot recall another (greek) movie of the recent film history, that had performances to match those in this movie.

Many things might be improvised in the movie and there might be a few story twists, that you might not like, but you cannot fault it for it's sheer rawness. There are of course a few flaws (there is even a few extras who obviously are not professionals), but this will still stay with you, if you let it.
