Storyline

Stelios is the owner of a Jazz Club in Athens. A few years ago, through the help of his former associate Vassos, Stelios received a business loan from the Romanian in order to renovate his club. In 2010, the recession finds Stelios on the brink of bankruptcy unable to repay the loan. The Romanian meets with Stelios and gives him one day to come up with a solution. In a vortex of adultery, drug abuse, violence, guilt and self-deceit, Stelios has a few hours left to save his club, salvage his crumbling marriage, battle the mafia loan-sharks, baptize his employee's kid and show up at school to receive his son's report card as a responsible parent.

Interesting moody and quite well done, even if the story is a touch familiar
30 July 2016 | by runamokprodsSee all my reviews

While the plot may be familiar – a Greek nightclub owner is in debt to the mob and is slowly sinking into ever worse and more frightening trouble – the moody and visually striking approach brought to it by Alexis Alexiou proves once again you can always re-tell a tale if you do it with a new voice. He also takes advantage of his nation's grave credit crisis'to create a political background of quite interesting irony to his character's woes.

Taking place largely at night, and making great use of existing artificial light (lens flairs are everywhere), this creates a dreamlike atmosphere that gives it a very subjective tone throughout. We are trapped in Stelios' nightmare, carried along by forces seemingly beyond his control. Stelios Marinas does some excellent work as the main character, and all the main supporting roles are well fleshed out too. The climactic showdown feels just a touch overblown, a bit out of sync with the lower key intensity of most of the film.

But overall this is one of those films I sort of tripped into hearing about and then made an effort to track down a copy of, ending up very pleased I did.
