Success Story

Greece 2017. Dir: Nikos Perakis. 110 min. DCP

Greece’s financial crisis is fodder for acerbic satire in seasoned Greek filmmaker Nikos Perakis’s dark ensemble comedy, featuring a cast of the country’s popular actors. “Success Story revolves around psychiatrist and author Panagis Pandoras (Constantine Markoulakis), who, while attending the inauguration of his family’s cultural centre, meets a young, ambitious actress (Fiona Georgiadi). This encounter kindles an ‘unequal’ love affair between the two, controlled by passion and power struggle. Friends and family try to intervene, but things take an unexpected turn when Pandoras’s life is put at risk following the announcement of his political candidacy” (Vassilis Economou, Cineuropa). In Greek with English subtitles.
