Dir.: Christopher Papakaliatis , Greece, 2012
Sunday, December 10, 3 PM, Talbot Auditorium, Luther Bonney Hall, USM Portland Campus
In Athens during the current economic crisis, Demetris (Papakaliatis) is a highly independent man, living a fairly normal life. He’s a confirmed bachelor at the age of 33 – his roommate is a female German shepherd called Lonesome. One night, Lonesome wants to be taken out. Demetris tries to change her mind but Lonesome insists. It’s at this moment that he must make a decision. And his choice will change everything. If Demetris goes out, he will meet Christina, the love of his life. If he stays in, he will not meet her and his life will take a different track. The film flips back and forth between both choices and, on the way, asks, ‘Does true love exist?’ ‘What is the impact of a severe economic crisis on people?’ ‘Can the crisis destroy a couple?’ A love story shown from two different angles in a changing world. Not Rated; includes one intense sexual scene. In Greek with English sub-titles. 111 minutes.
