Storyline

God Loves Caviar is the compelling story of IOANNIS VARVAKIS, and his journey from humble Greek pirate to international caviar millionaire, with the ear of Catherine the Great of Russia. His wealth and power, however, do not give him contentment, and his boundless ambition only brings suffering, until he gives everything away, including himself, in the name of love. This epic tale, based on Varvakis' real life, moves from the Greek island of Psara to the court of Catherine the Great in Russia and the shores of the Caspian Sea, and then back to Greece, a country torn by civil war and the fight for independence, during the Revolution of 1821 against the Ottoman Empire.

don't waste your money - or your time.
21 October 2012 | by (Greece) – See all my reviews

Possibly the worst film I've seen in the past 20-25 years. No character development - I kept wondering how Varvakis was going to contribute to Greece's War of Independence and was never really satisfied with a clear- cut answer. As already pointed out, Varvakis' daughter, when she re-enters the film as an adult (we are first introduced to her as a newborn) is so inappropriate. In age, she could easily be Varvakis' wife. Like another reviewer, although I do not generally form impressions based on looks, many actors/actresses/a couple of the children were so unattractive as to detract from the film. Seriously.

I don't think writing a script or directing a film are easy, but the people doing these jobs on this film deserve to be fired. I wish I hadn't wasted my money on this.

As per popular Greek commercial - TRAGIC.
