Ταξίδι στη Μυτιλήνη - Journey to Mytilene / 2010

Προσθήκη λεζάντας
Veteran filmmaker Lakis Papastathis combines nostalgic fiction with his personal experiences when reacquainting with his birthplace – Mytilene, on the Aegean island of Lesbos. Christos Hatzipanayotis plays Kostas – who is, ostensibly, an on-screen version of Papastathis – a filmmaker who returns from working in Paris to his childhood home after inheriting the family residence. His return sees him amiably reacquainted with relatives and friends; fond reminiscences facilitate a connection between the older, wiser Kostas and the same man as a ten-year-old boy. However, Kostas has to manage a daunting confrontation with a dark time in his family’s history, along with his relationship with Eleni – a young woman working at a nursing home on the island.

Director: Lakis Papastathis
