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.

Obsession with Hong Kong thrillers won't let this movie breathe
30 June 2015 | by See all my reviews

Modern Greek cinema hasn't had the easiest of relationships with Athens, the mega capital of Greece where around half of the population lives. It usually prefers to set its stories in the countryside, or in the no man's lands of domestic hell, as was the case with Dogtooth, Greek cinema's biggest export of the last decade.

Alexis Alexiou, the director of Tetarti 04:45 (Wednesday 04:45) goes to the opposite direction. His camera seems determined to shoot every street light and road bump of night time Athens. However, he doesn't really want to capture the city but rather transform it to Hong Kong, the source of his movie's inspiration.

Because Tetarti is essentially a Hong Kong thriller set in Athens. Unfortunately, that is the movie's eventual downfall. Alexiou the director can recreate all the slow motion shots and shooting duels that characterize the genre with gusto and flair albeit without bringing something really new to the blueprint set by masters like John Woo. His kraft however is let down by Alexiou the screenwriter. His efforts to weave into the story the social realities created by the ongoing financial crisis in Greece are mostly schematic and the plot itself simplistic at best. Club owner owns debt to Romanian kingpin, is being assigned a task he doesn't want to execute and the end is utterly and tediously predictable. Most of the actors, with the exception of Mainas, fall victim to the paper thin characters and Adam Bousdoukos, who has the second meatiest part, doesn't really deliver.

Tetarti can only be recommended for hardcore addicts of Hong Kong thrillers. For the rest, the repeated traveling night shots of Athenian highways lit by the reddish street lights will eventually overstay their welcome and there will be little left to keep them intrigued.
