Storyline

In a restless Athens against the backdrop of Greece's socio-economic collapse, three vivid stories of intercultural romance intertwine, depicting the turmoil and the inner sadness of a country amid a ceaseless explosion of immigration and financial meltdown. In this colourful triptych of love, the Syrian refugee, Farris, saves a damsel in distress, the idealist college student, Daphne, as a seemingly endless wave of fervent nationalism spreads in town. Then, in the following segment, Giorgos, an unhappily-married, pill-popping sales manager, delves deep into an unexpected affair with Elise, the frigidly beautiful Scandinavian corporate executive. Finally, Maria, a wistful Greek housewife whose family is struggling to keep afloat, has a fateful encounter with the retired German expatriate, Sebastian, who offers Maria a second chance in love before the well-stocked aisles of a local supermarket. In the end, can love transcend all barriers? Written by Nick Riganas

Stories of modern Greek Romance
11 February 2017 | by subxerogravitySee all my reviews

In a time when Greece is having some serious struggles comes three stories of people who are making romantic connections and their connections are effected by the struggle.

Some are good some are long lasting but not met to be and it would not be Greek it they didn't have a tragedy.

Thankfully JK Simmons was in this movie or I would not be able to pronounce anyone's name in this.

Funny romantic and very dramatic as the Greeks discuss the politics of what's going on in the country today while still trying to find love. Sounds very Greek, right? It was a very good movie.
