Tassos Boulmetis wrote and directed this largely autobiographical drama about growing up during a time of great upheaval. Young Greek Fanis lives in Turkey and spends a lot of time in his grandfather Vasilis's grocery store, learning about everything from spices to the mysteries of the universe. He also falls for a Turkish girl called Saime. Then, in 1963, Greek-Turkish relations sour and Fanis and his parents are forced to move to Athens. Life goes on, but Fanis yearns to see Vasilis and Saime again. A touching tale which, despite Fanis's miserable situation, does manage to deliver plenty of fun along the way.
An anthem for troubled loners everywhere and an emblem of French cinematic cool, this is the deeply moving tale of a cheeky yet vulnerable schoolboy.
