Original title: O Asymvivastos
Greece, 1979. Greka Film. Screenplay by Andreas Thomopoulos. Cinematography by Dimitris Vernicos. Produced by Mihalis Lefakis, Andreas Thomopoulos. Music by Mikis Theodorakis, Yorgos Theodorakis. Production Design by Chris Protin. Film Editing by Giorgos Triandafyllou.
Pavlos Sidiropoulos has abandoned his medical training to pursue his true passion: songwriting. His girlfriend disapproves and leaves him, and his music career is going nowhere fast, leaving him to hang out with his new musician buddy and just keep dreaming. This aimless Greek drama is made on a painfully low budget and it shows, but what really kills it is slacker pacing and a completely uninteresting story. The plot is basically an excuse to have lead star Sidiropoulos (who was at the time much more famous as a singer) belt out the tunes, and he does so extremely well, but the bits in between songs are a deadly bore.
