24th Athens International Film Festival

India Blues

The relationship between two very different men filtered through eight different emotional states they experience: pain, desire, happiness, jealousy, peace, love and anger. Significant and insignificant moments in their common trajectory spark an exploration of the chaotic universe of love and the tumultuous emotions that follow suit.

In “India Blues”, George Markakis tells a love story that goes above and beyond the usual queer issues through the use of minimal dialogue, plenty of improvisation and barely contained tension. Markakis shields audiences from discovering the chronological order of events, leading them straight to the emotional core of the movie and how it reflects his personal experience.

The first kiss, the first time they have sex, the awkward silences, the last embrace, they all get mixed up, in true Godard fashion. Just like he once said, “a story should have a beginning, a middle and an end, but not necessarily in that order”. N.S.

      Upstream Color

      Kris and Jeff are inexplicably drawn together by an irresistible force, unveiling a forgotten past they never knew existed. Walking the fine line between love story and thriller against a sci-fi backdrop, Carruth creates a cinematic experience full of fascinating imagery that's definitely worth a try.

      Spring Breakers

      Spring Breakers

      Harmony Korine's latest provocative effort is, without any hint of exaggeration, the guiltiest pleasure of the film season, capturing four young girls in a violent, heavily sexualized Spring Break frenzy.

      My Sweet Pepper Land

      My Sweet Pepper Land

      A bitter sense of humour and atmospheric musical inserts complete a modest work of art, which rightfully gained a lot of supporters in the last Cannes Film Festival.

      Much Ado About Nothing

      Much Ado About Nothing

      What is ?The Avengers? director doing in a romantic comedy inspired by Shakespeare's ?Much Ado About Nothing?? I'll let you know what he's doing: he has written and directed it, he has composed and recorded the score and he's even helmed the production, just to prove he's a little more than every comic book nerd's new favorite director.

      Jiseul

      Jiseul

      Based on a bloody page in South Korean history that is all but forgotten, Muel O. zeroes in on the attempts of an entire village to escape certain death by hiding out in underground caves, faced with freezing temperatures, starvation and fear. Avoiding a traditional reenactment, the director chooses to highlight intimate moments on both sides of the fence.
