I had a chance to watch this movie and I have to say that it left me a bitter taste at the end. Being Greek, helped me to feel better the scenes of the film, transmitting the melancholy and the depreciation of the west suburbs of Athens. The film was depressing but true. The only glitch that I can find is the weak dialogs of the actors, but it doesn't stop to get the message that the writer tries to pass. Takis is sad, Takis rarely speaks, Takis is accepting other people's hate and anger. And what does he gets? Nothing. Nothing but humiliation and inconsideration. They say that in every family there is a tragedy, but in tragedies there is always the solution. Is this the way out? I leave it up to you to judge. Personally I liked the film and I give it 8 out of 10
