  • dionysus67's rating of the film Balkanisateur

    Road movie about a 'coming of age' for two Greek friends that works as a metaphor for Greece's maturation 'issues' and the temptation of playing smart with the recently accessible 'backward' Balkans. The 'business' flirt with Central Europe backfires and the awareness of Greece's Balkan identity reaffirmed on the level of personal relations. Smooth narration but weak in cinematic terms. Enjoyable with two good leads.
