A sweet story about a man, buildings..and getting old.
20 October 2010 | by See all my reviews

We saw this film at the Chicago International Film Festival. We found it a somewhat self-indulgent piece where Periklis Hoursoglou, the writer, director and star, must contend with a character (Pavlos) who enjoys two devoted women, one only 23, and a lying, sabotaging mother who resists his efforts to cease being her child, and to assume his deceased father's role as head of the family and building manager.

I enjoyed the film; my Finnish wife disliked the women's characters for their undying affection for Pavlos; she called the film an old man's dream world. I enjoyed learning about maintaining those old Greek buildings,and how plumbers are the same everywhere. But in the end, it was a sweet story about a man's life, and the universal problems we all encounter getting older.
