Dreamer Rudely Awakened
Something changes in the relationship of Achilleas and Anna when she starts to dream vividly and insists on relating her dreams to her husband. He is a barrister in the middle of an important murder trial and his temper becomes frayed with Anna's seeming indifference and involvement and preoccupation with her dream world. The viewer is often left wondering whether reality or dream is portrayed, this contributing to the (often) tongue-in-cheek telling of the story. The film is beautifully shot and there are some mysterious dream sequences, while for some light relief there is the mystery of the "music terrorist" who places speakers in the most unexpected places in central Athens and then blasts everyone with Brahms at the most unexpected time.
