Tassos Boulmetis Greece, 2003

dionysus67's rating of the film A Touch of Spice

Box office success in Greece, Boulmetis' film mingles with skill collective memory after historical events (the 1964 expulsion of Greeks from Constantinople) transform the fate of individual lives and open wounds that will never heal. All this is told with conventional cinematic technique rendering food the connecting link between individual memory and lost community. Not uninteresting, yet cinematically unrewarding.
