Anna Kalaitzidou, Tasos Nousias, Themis Panou
Part of the Edinburgh Greek Film Festival 2017 Season
There is a helpline. It can’t help with what has happened to Greece, but people still ring. This beautiful nocturne of a film takes us into seven stories in which normality does its best to cope normally with challenges beyond anyone’s everyday skills. It is the kind of film you watch spellbound and sorrowful. Aristotle, who knew all about pity and terror, would have liked it. It’s a sad film and, like the best sad music, it fortifies you, inspiring feelings of sympathy, resistance and enquiry. The Greeks can still make great tragedies. Maybe that’s where the recovery begins.
