When a young woman learns of a sudden deterioration in her father’s health she returns home, only to find ghosts from the past haunting her.
Artemis (Sofia Kokkali) has lived away from her parent’s Athens residence for some years when she receives a call informing her that her father, Paris (Lazaros Georgakopoulos), has had a stroke. She flies back to visit him, but soon becomes his primary carer while her family find a suitable full-time replacement. In doing so, Artemis is reminded of the difficult past she and Paris share. Is it possible, with such divisions, to reach a point of reconciliation?
Jacqueline Lentzou was studying film in London when she heard her father suffered a stroke and returned home to a role that mirrors her protagonist. But Artemis’ inner life is very much culled from the filmmaker’s imagination. Nevertheless, what emerges is a drama that attempts to explore familial relationships in all their complexity, unwilling to offer easy answers of resolutions. And the film is all the more powerful for it. An impressive feature debut, Lentzou’s film is involving and, by its end, surprising.
