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.

Excellent artistic work
3 January 2020 | by i_am_ster_damSee all my reviews

By the greek standards of film making at the 90's this is one of the best and most complete artistic works of the decade. The photography of Haris Stavrou is captivating, the soundtrack by Stamatis Kraounakis and the songs singed by Dimitra Papiou was a big hit at the time. The portraying of the 'skyladika' which were and still are, the so called greek night clubs with live music its fantastic and realistic. But the center of the movie its the heartbreaking love between the two leading actors Maximoy and Kouris, which have great chemistry.
