SUGARTOWN: THE BRIDEGROOMS
[Sugartown: Oi gabroi]
The remote village of Zaharo (in Greek, "Sugar Town") has lost its female population to the big city. In desperation, the mayor organizes an expedition to Russia, along with a local delegation of young shepherds, in search of prospective brides. Awash in local color and characters, Kimon Tsakiris's charming crowd-pleaser also highlights the widespread problem of population shifts in today's Europe.
