Edge of Night (1999)

Afti i nyhta menei (original title)
On the brink of the new millennium, a young aspiring singer leaves Athens for the seedy nightclubs of the rough Greek province, bent on getting her big break amid milky-white cigarette smokes, decayed divas--and ultimately--broken hopes.

A Great Greek Movie
14 May 2001 | by NYMovieFanSee all my reviews

This movie is a fascinating portrayal of the "rembetika" clubs in the countryside of Greece. One of the best movies to come out of Greece in recent years, it showcases the dark side of life in some small, isolated towns during the harsh winter months. The soulful music, written by Stamatis Kraounakis, one of Greece's foremost artists, is another reason the movie is so good.
