Provides an extraordinary account of low cunning at the heart of Greece's 2015 financial bailout. The more defiant the left-wing Syriza government became, the more it was met with intimidation from some or duplicitous reassurance from others.Written by

Yanis Varoufakis chose the title ironically from a quote by Christine Lagarde after the Eurogroup meeting on Greek debt in June 2015: "For the moment we are short of a dialogue, the key emergency is to restore the dialogue with adults in the room." See more »
In the closing credits, most of the depicted personalities are cited only with their first name : "Yanis", "Alexis", "Wolfgang", "Christine", "Emmanuel".... One notable difference is Jean-Claude Junkers who is cited as "Junkers". See more »
A clear view from within the eurogroup during the Greek drama. Gavras is bold and shows high tensions, clear colors of the circus we live in, luck of democracy, solid reasons for criticism of an amateur leftist government including Yianis and a great Lulis acting this role. The finale though is weak imo. A solid 6! - but we must revisit the film a few years later. Gavras takes the risk and makes the movie from his and Varoufakis point of view and gives a true atmosphere of the time. If you watch the film watch it trying to stay out fro
m political parties and personal views. Discuss it later.
