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.
With his comatose and hospitalised wife into a steadily critical condition, a neat and grief-stricken solicitor finds himself all alone to take care of his teenage son. Struggling to cope with a shocking new reality while shrouded by a thick veil of perpetual sadness, more and more, the stone-faced lawyer realises that extreme pain and misery can evoke intense pleasure, as the neighbours' unconditional sympathy becomes increasingly addictive. Now, the pained father's burgeoning dependence to pity and the kindness of others turns into a plentiful source of bliss, and he's prepared to go to great lengths to prolong it. However, what happens if, God forbid, his wife recovers?Written by
Amazing. In times dissatisfying, others exaggerated and always, cringy. I know so many humans who feed from sadness and compassion. This is, obviously, an extreme example, and I absolutely loved it. It's extremely genius. I mean, how easy was to produce, direct and make a story like this one? This strange. I'm glad someone took the risk.
I laughed so many times with this contemporary-anthropological-maniac-horror story. Just genius. I wish this Greek weird wave thing produces more of this!
