22nd ATHENS INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL

AIFF.GR

The Apostate

30/9/2016, 18:00, Odeon Opera 1

Wishing to make his atheism official, a philosophy student in Madrid asks to have his name removed from the records of the Catholic Church. His mother and the church bureaucracy have a different opinion on the matter. With its genuine Bunuel-esque touch, this delightful existential comedy wittily talks about the traditions that we think are going to leave us alone just because we ignore them. Special Mention and FIPRESCI award at the San Sebastian Film Festival.
