Elpida, a middle-aged housewife, is trapped in the misery of an oppressive loveless marriage, with a man who has no consideration for her feelings and needs. Her monotonous life is disrupted when a young painter is employed to paint the building she lives in. Her imagination then starts to flourish as she is confronted with her unquenchable desires, her body and the husband she has no love for. After he sells her car without her consent, she becomes vindictive and violent towards him, but her perception of reality is questioned when she has no recollection of events that actually happened.

Two odious and shabby people trapped in a marriage
18 September 2019 | by random-70778See all my reviews

There is a bit of unintended irony in this film in that both the husband and wife are equally wretched people.

We have all observed marriages like this. The full 90 minutes of it is a bit over the top though.
