24th Athens International Film Festival

Black Milk

25/9/2016, 19:45, Odeon Opera 1

A screenwriter wasting his talent on soap operas finds himself unwittingly drawn into the underworld. A postmodern exercise on nihilistic humour? A mutated comedy about the end of innocence? Or maybe a film that waited for more than two decades to show how timely it is? Michail Marmarinos, Ieroklis Michailidis, Mirto Alikaki, Renos Haralambidis, Takis Spiridakis, Christos Stergioglou and Kostas Gousgounis round out the proudly all-star cast.

      “Surreal allegory, black comedy, film noir in the guise of a kitsch musical, an intellectual version of “Showgirls” or anarchist cinema along the lines of Makavejev?”. These were the thoughts of film critic Babis Achtsoglou upon seeing the first feature-length film by Nikos Triandafyllidis about a cabaret club whose eclectic clientele includes charming scoundrels, alluring dancers and Harry Klynn in a role that runs counter to everything he's done before in his career.

      The Overcoat

      The Overcoat

      An elderly storekeeper decides to treat himself to a new overcoat and a tailor goes back to work to make his friend's dream come true. Based on Nikolai Gogol's short story of the same name, this moving film is the rare artistic meeting, as well as the swan song, for two great actors: Dinos Iliopoulos and Vassilis Diamantopoulos. Free entrance

      Tuxedomoon: No Tears

      Tuxedomoon: No Tears

      Tuxedomoon, the dark offsprings of the San Francisco electronic scene, reunited in 1997 in Greece. Nikos Triandafyllidis managed to capture the band's unworldly melodies and post-punk aesthetic in an invaluable document of their historic concert at the Lycabettus theatre. No tears for the creatures of the night! Free entrance
