| Black Milk? I Prefer it White
Alekos is a young author who is struggling to overcome a mental block. It is not helpful at all that at the same time, he is embroiled in disastrous love affairs and dangerous friendships. He is thoroughly unable to help himself and gets into deeper and hotter water. However, Alekos has a big secret, which he hopes will be his ultimate salvation: He is able to travel in space-time and is thus able to re-live situations that test him. In retrospect, he is able to change his disastrous previous choices, taking the more advantageous ones the second time round. When he returns to the "present reality" he becomes aware that something is amiss and things aren't what they ought to be or is it, oughtn't be what they are... Some redeeming features in this film make it watchable, but I have seen better based on a similar premise. "Groundhog Day" springs to mind, which although completely different is related, and also the Chinese film: "Take 2 - Love Correction".
