Storyline

In a restless Athens against the backdrop of Greece's socio-economic collapse, three vivid stories of intercultural romance intertwine, depicting the turmoil and the inner sadness of a country amid a ceaseless explosion of immigration and financial meltdown. In this colourful triptych of love, the Syrian refugee, Farris, saves a damsel in distress, the idealist college student, Daphne, as a seemingly endless wave of fervent nationalism spreads in town. Then, in the following segment, Giorgos, an unhappily-married, pill-popping sales manager, delves deep into an unexpected affair with Elise, the frigidly beautiful Scandinavian corporate executive. Finally, Maria, a wistful Greek housewife whose family is struggling to keep afloat, has a fateful encounter with the retired German expatriate, Sebastian, who offers Maria a second chance in love before the well-stocked aisles of a local supermarket. In the end, can love transcend all barriers? Written by Nick Riganas

Best Movie in a long time...
24 December 2015 | by catherinegreeceSee all my reviews

I watched it yesterday and I kept my expectations rather high, because the main theme of the movie and the way it shapes politics concerns me in a direct manner. It was even better than I expected it. The script is extremely interesting, especially if you like movies that have to do with the society and politics. I daresay it depicted my country, Greece, as it is in reality. With both its breathtaking beauty and its ugliness. What mostly enthralled me though, was the directing and the photography. On the whole, it was a movie that captivated you frame by frame. The acting was another surprise, although it should not have been, with such an impressive casting. Niki Vakali and Tawfeek Barhom were two names, which I am going to remember and watch over from right on. Andrea Osvart was pleasantly fitting to her role, like it was written for her. JK Simmons and Maria Kavogianni amazed me with the natural innocence of their romance. There was chemistry and simultaneously their acting was enviable. And, lastly, Christopher Papakaliatis has to be congratulated, because he did not only direct and write the film, but he also gave a fairly good performance.
