The Homecoming (I Epistrofi)
Location: Redstone Theater
Dir. Vassilis Douvlis. 2008, 98 mins. Digital projection. In Greek with English subtitles. With Arto Apartian, Maria Skoula, Artur Luzi. The three central characters in this drama of marital infidelity and personal betrayal are at the same time victims and victimizers, pursuing in their own way a dream that transcends them. After years of factory work in Germany, Elias and his much younger wife return to their almost deserted Greek village. Indifferent to his wife’s unhappiness, he buys a service station–café and hires a young undocumented immigrant to help him run the business. The situation becomes complicated when the young man finds himself drawn to his boss’s wife. The surprise ending is a stunner.
