Movie Info

In a small eel-farming town in the west of Greece, two women live solitary lives while dreaming of getting away. Elisabeth is a once-ambitious policewoman forced to relocate from Athens ten years ago and now living a joyless, hung-over life; Rita is the quiet, mysterious sister of a lounge singer in the local disco. When a sudden death upsets the town and turns the local community upside-down, the two women who had been ignoring each other's existence begin drifting towards each other. As the secrets hidden in the swamps begin to surface, they will have a chance to become each other's saviours.

  • A stylish, many-stranded mystery that often casts viewers adrift in clashing tides of dark genre convention, nightmarish surrealism and fevered close-up character study.

  • While the screenplay definitely has too many elements to be able to function without dropping a few balls, Tzoumerkas does masterfully paint the stifling atmosphere of a godforsaken town where women's dreams and potential have come to die.

  • A drumbeat of anxiety and impending violence thuds insistently from this opaque, disquieting spectacle...

  • While Tsoumerkas doesn't pull off the miracle you hope, the acting fairly crackles.
