Greece in 2015: the economy is in tatters and the country is on the verge of bankruptcy. A new government rebels against the EU's iron-fisted rule and inspires millions of Europeans. Based on the political memoirs of Yanis Varoufakis.
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

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 »
Honestly I couldn't believe starting from the first scenes of the film that this was a Costas Gavras film. It screamed "quick and dirty" approach through out the entire movie. Bad direction, bad lighting and photography - almost amateur. It's really a pity that such an acclaimed creator made this work... Nice surprise from the Loulis in the role of Yannis Varoufakis, at least he was ok to watch.
