Storyline

In the early 1970s, with Greece under the rule of a military junta, pre-teen Stavros discovers a strange accompaniment to the awakening of eros: he subverts the meanings of classical myths, creating strange physical symptoms in those around him. Stavros' conservative parents, perplexed and flustered, take him from specialist to specialist. Diagnoses vary, until a fortune-teller deems that the boy is victim of a rare, ancient disease, which exhibits himself when he is in love. After the collapse of the junta, as Stavros meets the toils of love and politics in university, the influence of his strange affliction extends, from his immediate environment into the political arena.

Atmosphere and beauty
16 January 2016 | by stingamihaelaSee all my reviews

Since the introductory scene, the movie is taking you into a world of the past, in the atmosphere of the '60's. This is well sustained by the music, by the costumes and also by the excellent photography. The story line mixes fantasy, humour and creativity. It is the story of a young photographer in need of following the myths of his childhood, but giving them a totally different meaning. He denies to take over the business of their family friend and continue photographing in order to follow his desire to become a film maker and sometimes to turn the stories upside down. We learn through his story the meaning of "notias", where the imagination meets the past. It is the film of a becoming and I've rated it 8 because of its very good artistic realization.
