Plot Summary

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 Ulf Kjel Gür

Edit
Trivia 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 »
Movie Connections Features Golden Dawn: A Personal Affair (2016). See more »
Crazy Credits 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 »
