Synopsis

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.

What our educators say

"It really is a chance for us to open children's minds to the power of film not just as a vehicle for entertainment but also as a way in to understanding their own world and the worlds of people whose lives are very different."

- Marlon Perkins, Teacher, Whitstable and Seasalter Endowed CofE Junior School, Kent
