Pity

Oiktos

Directed by Babis Makridis
Greece, Poland, 2018
Drama

Synopsis

The story of a man who feels happy only when he is unhappy: addicted to sadness, with such need for pity, that he’s willing to do everything to evoke it from others. This is the life of a man in a world not cruel enough for him.

Pity Directed by Babis Makridis

Critics reviews

Makridis’s second feature film is not a sweeping work so much as one with a fixed target: Pity intimately navigates the state of the fragile male ego with merciless aplomb.

While given the actual context of the invocation of the pursuit of happiness through positive thinking as a lifestyle and life philosophy, Pitycould be read as a caustic antidote and subversive and witty foray to undermine the cult of optimism.
