[font=Century Gothic]Even the simplest of decisions can have consequences for the future. Take for example, the one in "A Girl in Black" facing two tourists, Pavlos(Dimitris Horn), a writer, and Antonis(Notis Peryalis), an architect, when they arrive at an island from Athens of whether to stay at a hotel or at a local's house. They choose the latter to take in some local color. As they follow Marina(Ellie Lambeti), they learn that her family was once prosperous but her father getting killed during the Nazi occupation changed that for the worse. Soon after, Marina's mother(Eleni Zafeiriou) is chased through the streets after being caught in the embrace of Panagis(Stephanos Stratigos). This might also explain why Marina's brother Mitsos(Anestis Vlahos) is constantly getting into fights.[/font]
[font=Century Gothic]"A Girl in Black" is an exquisitely photographed and gripping melodrama that explores the nature of freedom as shone through the prism of travel. As a tourist, one wants to get away and to enjoy oneself while at the same time knowing one must eventually return to one's drab life. As beautiful as the island may be, living there can very hard especially considering the people on the island are under constant watch from each other and cannot make a move without it being known instantly by everyone. At the center of this is the decaying house(a tip to "The Fall of the House of Usher") which is under a veritable state of siege.[/font]
