Panos H. Koutras
As the lights flicker on a warm August night, amidst vacant Athens' stillness, a modern bohemian flirts with a woman he just met at a phone booth, while strolling around the city's quiet night streets.
During an unbearably hot Athenian summer, a cramped flat becomes a hellish urban battlefield for an ornamental paterfamilias and his family. Now, ugly truths and deleterious words become weapons in a dirty war. Can they emerge unscathed?
The story of a man who feels happy only when he is unhappy, a man addicted to sadness, who has such need for pity, he's willing to do everything to evoke it from others. This is the life of a man in a world not cruel enough for him.
A group of Pontian Greek immigrant teenage dreamers dwelling marginalised in the notorious and lustreless wild suburbia, witness the city's repulsive face and an unrelenting world defined by prostitution, drugs, and inevitably, loss.
Around the year 2000, a terrible occurence shocks the city of Athens: a huge piece of moussaka appears on the city streets, spreading panic and death. Everyone keeps wondering: why, where, how, for what reason? But no one can give an answer...Written by
I'm not going to analyze anything from the script.....i can tell you though, its as lousy as it can be. But that was what director mr.Koutras(former musician) wanted to achieve in the first place. The idea was to make a hilarious b-movie based on some classic flicks right back from the 50's. But the fun part is that he totally distorted and humorised every piece of fact that used from that period of sci-fi cinema.The movie is fast paced, totally enjoyable and became an instant cult from the moment that was released in Theaters all around.
You know , small budget really takes the creator's capabilities a bit further cause of the pressure to conclude as fast and as cheaply, the movie, as humanly possible. Thats why Koutras made an effort to produce something not as corny as a 50's or 60's sci-fi b-flick, but faster, more up to date and definitely funnier than any other cult, b-movie film that came out. I think that this director is making fun of everyone and he enjoys every last minute of it. The good thing for this film is that the actors surprisingly followed the director's guidance and felt free to express their true selfes ,without having to worry about how the movie gonna look to the sci-fi audience that will see it.Finally, One thing i can say for sure...... that, i had a heck of a good time watching it.
