Movie Info

Love leads to madness when an unstable man falls for an unsuspecting woman in this thriller from Greece. Iasonas (Giorgos Kakanakis) is throwing a party one evening when a friend introduces him to Penelope (Serafita Grigoriadou); the two quickly hit it off and soon she's sharing his home. However, before long it becomes obvious that something isn't quite right -- each of them tends to see things in different ways, Iasonas has a hard time making his memories skew with what has actually happened, and tension between them reaches the boiling point. But when the relationship finally explodes into violence, what actually happens between Iasonas and Penelope? Istoria 52 (aka Tale 52) was the first feature film from writer and director Alexis Alexiou.

Audience Reviews for Istoria 52 (Tale 52)


A maze of a film which thankfully the moment it starts to feel that your are aimlessly going in circles it starts to really bring new dimensions and questions that cannot and will not be explained. A young Lynch in the making?
