A romance of extremes in Athens tomorrow. A cashier finds true love in the face of a young waitress who has just been released from prison. When he looses her, he travels all the way to get her back.  

The film is obviously shot on location in the seediest sections of Athens, from strip clubs and porn theaters to dark underpasses and all these, with the help of a extravagant black and white photography, create a strange timeless atmosphere, that could be a future but also a past. This dark dirty scenery is juxtaposing the ugliness and the cruelty of inner city life against the purity of the couple's passion.

Eurydice is a vamp-like waif , and becomes the obsession of an ordinary guy, Orpheus. But she is also the obsession of another dark character, police officer and something more. After his stunning debut with Antio Verolino (1994), Athanitis shows here that he has a magic cinematic touch driving us in a strange aesthetic and sentimental trip which is unique.

The film has something from mute Hollywood or German movies and at the same time rolls like a Marilyn Manson video. Really surprising, extremely fascinating.

  1. this movie is so superb. Thank you for it. Can you provide others from the director? especially the short "Madonna calls Fassbinder and the 1994 feature "Antio Verolino" are of interest.
