Movie Info

Greek immigrant Harry Papadopoulos is a self-made millionaire with a lavish mansion house and extravagant lifestyle. But when the economic downturn hits, Harry suddenly loses everything. The one thing the bank cannot seize is the disused family fish and chip shop in London. Harry can't sell it without the consent of the co-owner - who happens to be his long-estranged brother Spiros. The only option is for Harry and his three children to move into the chippy itself - easier said than done, especially when a rival Turkish kebab shop owner is scrutinising their every move! But upon moving in, Harry finds that old memories are being stirred and, together with his brother, he decides to re-open the neglected chippy...

Critic Reviews for Papadopoulos & Sons

All Critics (13) | Top Critics (1)

The cast is pleasant enough to enliven the generic material, though much of writer-director Marcus Markou's dialogue is beyond salvaging.

January 9, 2014 | Full Review…

There are zero surprises here, but a strong cast and a decent script add up to dependable entertainment.

August 15, 2013 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

Just like Arnold Schwarzenegger was told his name was too big for movie posters, Marcus Markou's inspirational debut feature film has an impossible title on purpose.

April 12, 2013 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

A late pitch at pathos isn't quite so convincing, but otherwise this is a fresh, funny and poignant snapshot of ethnic life in London.

April 12, 2013 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

This flat, feelgood family story transposes the cliches of Zorba the Greek to the present day.

April 8, 2013 | Full Review…

Some meaty themes and complex performances add badly needed weight to this somewhat simplistic British comedy-drama.
