Storyline

Twice-orphaned Jace, a seven-year-old Albanian of Greek origin, witnesses a massacre that wipes out his entire foster family in Argyrokastron, and then falls in the hands of a bunch of ruthless gangsters who "export" children abroad for various profitable reasons (ranging from beggary to organ trade). Jace ends up in Athens, Greece, begging at street corners, exploring the secret horrors of brutal institutions for young offenders or, much later, serving obscure patrons, in an underworld where violent loss seems to be his only destiny. The movie follows Jace's inverted Odyssey in a dark universe of abuse, murder and fear, as he desperately (and silently) seeks for a "family" of his own or, at least, for a sense of belonging. Written by Menelaos Karamaghiolis

Jace by Menelaos Karamagiolis
3 October 2012 | by (Zurich, Swiss) – See all my reviews

JACE: Finally a European film that speaks to what the West can not afford the memory of reality The first western film that incorporates elaborate, the symbolism of the elephant and the 'what he represents in eastern beliefs, with the silence of the hero, the holy bread chatter analysts realistic drama using its weapons only to give us a first reading of events .. Offering protection from evergetithentes the past, as deus ex machina to form a modern universal tragedy with events silent out of shame or taboo, and we know that is happening around us. A record of life if left to drift in the plot, while the goal is much more insidious to open the closed gates of intuition and dive into the most subconsciously your secrets. An illustrated feat a civilization collapses, after repeated rapes and ellipsis as psychoanalytic session, working unwittingly you like an incomprehensible treatment unmentionable wounds. With the help of a great cast and dialogs, an eclectic anthology of European literature of the last 2 centuries, only for the insiders absolutely innocent. Glad I'm not incredibly film critic, but a viewer who felt a newfound awakening, experiencing exciting way with the futility of intentions, when the acts specify the existence, like a whisper of truth that grows in the most suffocating life construction. But this should not be the cinema?
