Synopsis

The story of a man who feels happy only when he is unhappy: addicted to sadness, with such need for pity, that he’s willing to do everything to evoke it from others. This is the life of a man in a world not cruel enough for him.

MUBI's take

We’re big fans of the “Greek Weird Wave,” and while figurehead Yorgos Lanthimos has decamped overseas, there is still plenty perversely amiss in Greece. Makridis’s savage Sundance competitor is exemplary: its black humor, social critique, and clever, sun-drenched imagery are a wry provocation.
