UNFAIR WORLD [Adikos kosmos]
2012 Oscar Selection, Greece
Filippos Tsitos (PLATO'S ACADEMY) returns with this absurdly comic crime story, featuring a bravura performance by Antonis Kafetzopoulos. "I don't want to be unfair," says hangdog police interrogation specialist Kafetzopoulos. But in his line of work, and debt-crisis-gripped Greece, there is little incentive to the contrary. After a payment to an informant backfires into a blackmail threat, Kafetzopoulos experiences a "disobedient" trigger finger, settling that score... but the money goes missing. Surely cleaning lady Theodora Tzimou must have seen it? Best Director and Actor, 2011 San Sebastian Film Festival; Official Selection, 2012 Rotterdam Film Festival.
