People ask about Greece. How bad are things? Is there hope? Greek films have been so full of The Crisis, we often felt we were inviting you to come and share the sorrows of Greece. Not this year. This year we have Greeks who suffer The Crisis but who are too busy living to think about it all the time. We have the celebratory 1968 by Boulmetis, (of A Touch of Spice), Pantelis Voulgaris’s latest historical epic and lots of Greeks behaving as Greeks do. Greek drivers still drive like charioteers, gentle Greek conversation still sounds like a breach of the peace: Greeks are still Greeks. Come and meet a few.
