I saw this at the San Francisco Greek Film Festival. Without spoiling it for those who haven't seen it, I'd say that this film has a touching and memorable storyline. I truly was surprised. One of the most interesting aspects of the film seems to be the result of a tight budget (mostly due to economic crisis and perhaps the youth of the director). There are basically two characters; the rest of the film is mostly scenery -- as varied as can be found in the Mediterranean on the island of Cyprus. That is, coastline, beautiful pines, open arid spaces -- and a car. With a film done this sparely everything depends on a good story and also the capability of the actors. I liked both, and especially remarked on the female lead. But it became about the importance of honor, raised questions about what a real man is, and where we find the truth about what's essential. An affirmation of what is good, in my opinion. See it if only for the amazing job with such a budget. Shakespeare, too, was staged in early times with a kind of bare bones approach compared to today's cinema, so were the early Greek plays. Quality shows through. I won't spoil the story...but it's very engaging and also a mystery, with plot twists and pathos in the end.
