Less soul than a video of a buttered toast falling
In this so called "new Greek wave" drama we follow the story of a young migrant that decides to surrogate for a wealthy couple. Problem is there is nothing new, or even Greek about this film. The shots are plain and stale. The acting is nowhere to be found and the film lacks soul. The actors tend to stare deep into each other's eyes for no particular reason expecting to raise tension and you can almost hear their sigh waiting for the director's "Cut" shout. The film is directed like linking the dots between objects that try hard to overshadow the lack of talent. The writing is dry and you get the feeling that no one had fun shooting this. Unnecessary is the best word to describe this film and it's high time Avranas found a new hobby cause apparently filming is not for everyone.
