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

A must see!
11 November 2012 | by (Athens, Greece) – See all my reviews

Probably one of the best examples of work of Greece's talented generations. The film captures a serious social issue with a magnificently sewed story line, exceptional acting by both young and more mature (theatrical) actors, brilliant cinematography, beautifully carved characters that all play a significant role in the development of the story and a mind-blowing mute protagonist. J.A.C.E. is a high quality film from every respect that is completely out of the ordinary Greek filmography that we've seen over the past years. A must see by all, not only for the film itself but for experiencing what persistence, professionalism and devotion can bring to life, much needed attributes in life, especially during challenging times. Well done!
