The story of a man who feels happy only when he is unhappy: addicted to sadness, with such need for pity, that he's willing to do everything to evoke it from others. This is the life of a man in a world not cruel enough for him.


Critic Reviews for Pity

All Critics (19) | Top Critics (3)

  • A disturbing and oftentimes very funny satire-drama, Pity is about that complex, primal human craving called empathy and the distance we're willing to go to summon it.

  • Its sharpest passages ... exert the bracing, mouth-shuddering tang of neat ouzo: You know how it's going to taste, but it leaves you wincing anyway.

  • As stylized as Makridis' second feature is, it's grounded in recognizable behavior, and its sly, dry playfulness reverberates with fascinating questions about emotions and how we portray them.

  • A really good film about the actual times that we live in. A masterpiece about the importance of the pity in nowadays life. [Full review in Spanish]

  • The dramatic interpretation of Drakopoulos gives unity to all of the tones in the film and leads 'Pity' to reveal itself as one of the most valuable, sarcastic and evil reflections on human emotion of recent times. [Full Review in Spanish]

  • Pity is morbid and ludicrous nonsense that grows tiresome...
