Marioneta (2019) Vassilis Kroustallis Marionette is a rather incomplete but still comely effort on acting your dreams out -without overacting. EDIT

() Vassilis Kroustallis Exercising a less firm hand over the amount of drama the film really wants to allow, Cat in the Wall still purrs with genuine affection and attracts your attention EDIT

Oleg (2019) Vassilis Kroustallis Kursietis successfully mounts tension in a gripping drama of characters which won't stray away from its main target: to show that a European dreamer can be a contradiction in terms. EDIT

My Friend the Polish Girl (2018) Vassilis Kroustallis As a study in personal (rather than national) loneliness, My Friend the Polish Girl is a crisp, somehow unfinished, but still personal study of a woman looking for intimacy. EDIT

Pause (2018) Vassilis Kroustallis The film is observant, and Mishiali uses deftly its main character towards her self-regulated journey to freedom. EDIT

Greta (2019) Vassilis Kroustallis Without being politically stinging, Greta is a deeply compassionate, but also sensuous cinematic effort on people willing to be in love against all odds - their own convictions notwithstanding EDIT

The Father's Shadow (A Sombra do Pai) (2018) Vassilis Kroustallis Skilled treatment of the magical element and smooth pacing in a doomed father-daughter relationship story, which sometimes seems to be too self-contained for its own good. EDIT

The Favourite (2018) Vassilis Kroustallis For all Lanthimos followers, The Favourite will be his most accessible piece to date, but displaying the same preoccupation with power games he has shown since Dogtooth (2009). EDIT

A Shelter Among the Clouds (Streha mes reve) (2018) Vassilis Kroustallis It is the sense of a home lost (rather than a religion convoluted) that the film embraces in both high and low registers. Not much magical realism here, but an individual, half-won humanistic battle against all realistic odds. EDIT
