She is beautiful and you feel jealous! Is death the end?
In modern Athens a motorbike dealer (Tassos) suffers from erotic jealousy for his young wife (Aliki). They are having constant arguments over the telephone calls that Aliki leaves unanswered when Tassos is around and this behaviour triggers his paranoia to the extreme. When life becomes impossible, the angry Aliki will drive away and Tassos will speed up behind her. A distraction by the mysterious DC2 Citroen driver will cost his life.
A new experience begins with a process. Tassos will discover in the rest of the movie what is hiding behind the "5 minutes deal". How do you spend 5 minutes of life when you are able to observe anything happening and you are in communication with both worlds? Some reminders of Hollywood movies dealing with the communication of ghosts in love with humans and a continuous explosion of comical situations could easily lead to the misinterpretation of the movie to be a cheap comedy.
Exploring the issues of the psyche of the jealous husband and the straight reference to the difficult issues of death and the life after, are making this movie to have a Mediterranean taste. Many things are symbolic, the hero strangles with a God he can not understand and finally the brave dismiss of Sartre's famous saying "the others are my hell" and replacing it by the far more Greekorthodox "you are already in hell, the hell is this, to be on your own", applies to the movie a unique atmosphere.
