Argyris Papadimitropoulos at IFFR
During a hot summer in Athens, the lives of two protagonists unexpectedly cross paths: a passionate teenage skater and a policeman in his midlife crisis. The opening film of IFFR 2011gives a great and urgent feeling of contemporary Greek society.
Parties, sex, dancing, drinking and sleeping it off on the beach: a typical young people's holiday. In Suntan, the doctor on a tourist Greek island falls for 19-year-old Anna. He tries to connect with her and her friends. But how wild are you at the age of 40? A both painful and comic coming-of-middle-age story. Nominated for the VPRO Big Screen Award.
