What a brilliant odd duck
17 August 2014 | by abucketofcornSee all my reviews

This is one odd duck of a film. A brilliant comedy drama that completely shines as something so far out there that's it's completely crafted in a unique originality that makes the viewer laugh and just giggle at its complete uniqueness. This is Wes Anderson meets Andrei Tarkovsky.

Babi Makridis directed a film that will stand the test of time as being a modern day classic. This is his first feature film. To direct an odd comical piece of art like this, for being his first feature length film, it makes me smile and super happy in knowing there are new and fresh directors making a new bold statement of film perfection. This movie is odd and strange and creates fantastic characters that the viewer can become a part of or at least follow along on the strange and odd journey of the Man. The characters other than Man are Black Rider, Bear, Wife, New Driver, Friend, Boss and Skipper just giving it another odd sense and yet brilliant film making at the same time.

This Greek film is something to remember and also watch several times in that the viewer can fully appreciate the value and interesting statement made. I think the value of the film is something that grows on you as you watch it over and over again. It was an official selection at 2012's Sundance Film Festival and also was a part of many film festivals. I believe the world of independent film making and festivals saw the ultimate value and uniqueness of this film. The direction has to be something to be seen to understand. I can't just put into words how amazing the shots are and how the landscape is beautiful and picture perfect as a piece of art on landscape come to life.

So what does the title stand for well here is the definition of the letter L: An L-plate is a square plate bearing a sans-serif letter L, for learner, which must be affixed to the front and back of a vehicle in many countries if its driver is a learner under instruction?
