An ambitious lawman finds love while working his first big case in this comedy from Greece. Leonidas (Aris Servetalis) is a young policeman who is eager for a new assignment, but instead of being sent to a big and bustling city as he requested, he finds himself walking the beat in a tiny coastal village, where he usually doesn't have much to do besides chasing nude sunbathers off the beach. Angeliki (Vicki Papadopoulou) is the hostess of a popular television chat show and the only celebrity to have come from the town; Angeliki is a local heroine, and everything stops in the village when her show comes on the air. Just when Leonidas thinks he'll never shake the boredom that's been following him since he came to town, he has a real crime to investigate -- the body of Zaharias (Antonis Katsaris), one of the townspeople, is discovered hear the base of a tall cliff, and while Leonidas's boss is certain the man simply fell to his death after too much booze, the young cop is certain foul play was involved. As Leonidas launches a criminal investigation, a major distraction is thrown in his path when the lovely Angeliki arrives in town for an unexpected visit. Leonidas's research suggests Angeliki may be linked to the death in some way, but when he tries to question her, their mutual infatuation quickly becomes an issue. Mikro Eglima (aka Small Crime) received its American premiere at the 2009 Palm Springs International Film Festival. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
