Greece / 2018 / 99 minutes / DCP / Color

Mourning his comatose wife, a drab lawyer plummets into sadness. As consolations from friends and neighbors become a regimented routine, he soon finds there are more perks to living with grief than without, and is willing to do everything to maintain his mood of solemnity and ensure the gestures of sympathy from others continue. Cannes Best Screenplay winner Efthymis Filippou crafted yet another deadpan black comedy of the Greek Weird Wave, gleefully shredding the artifice of feeling and fictional sentimentality.
