IN THIS LAND NOBODY KNEW HOW TO CRY
Giorgos Panoussopoulos, 2018 | 90 minutes
In this unconventional comedy, filmed in Ikaria, a French member of the European Parliament and his assistant, a Greek economist, end up in Armenaki, an islet lost somewhere in the Aegean Sea. They are there in an official political mission and are determined to finish their work as soon as possible. They are in for several surprises, however, as this isolated place and its residents are said to be miraculous and able to change people's lives. And they are. A spiral of unforeseen events will soon force both to reconsider their way of thinking and living. When they meet a visionary teacher and a seductive widow, they are soon carried away by the unlikeliest of love stories. A charming and thought provoking comedy about how we live and how we love.
