Tale 52

(Istoria 52)

by Alexis Alexiou ​

Greece 2008, 97 min

Sometimes your mind is the most dangerous place to be

After meeting at a dinner with friends, Iasonas and Penelope start a relationship. One day when Iasonas wakes up, Penelope has
disappeared, but he is unable to reconstruct what has happened... The disappearance of his recently conquered girlfriend drives rather shy Iasonas to despair and evokes confusing delusions in his already fragile mental makeup. A psychological thriller without redemption, with an outspoken visual language.
