Summer in Athens: Nikos, a gigging musician, is tasked with looking after his producer friend’s luxury villa for the weekend. Peace, quiet, a private pool and first-class amenities: this is the life, right? But peace and quiet don’t work for Nikos: he is still torturing himself about a recent break-up and needs answers before he can move on. With time to himself, he hatches a dastardly plan: to invite his ex, Sofia, over to the mansion on the pretence of a relaxing weekend, but use the isolation and solid construction of the place as a makeshift prison for Sofia. Sooner or later, she’s bound to get desperate enough to give him the answers he craves. Despite its seemingly quite disturbing plot, Afterlov is actually a soft-hearted and buoyant comedy about passion, heightened emotions and letting go. The debut feature from Greek filmmaker Stergios Paschos, Afterlov announces him as a writer / director capable of handling comedy, romance, tension and drama with flair and style. Orestes Kouzof
